The Nursery School 3-5 Years

Pre-School - Building Blocks Pre-School Teachers and the team are qualified and experienced in Nursery Care. The Nursery has a Vision which all the Team believe in and promote through a positive ethos and a enthusiastic approach in delivering The Early Years Foundation Stage throughout the setting. The children are separated into two groups, differentiating activities for the 3-4 year olds and the 4-5 year olds. Pre-School Teachers and the team of qualified Nursery Nurses, promote each child's Independence through mutual respect and understanding of each others feelings, taking turns, being kind to each other, helping each other and playing together. We approach the children's learning in a relaxed and gently structured atmosphere within a rich and stimulating environment.

Through topic work, group discussions, interesting activities and observations children become inquisitive and confident learners. Social interactions are fostered during daily routines such as, registration, storytime and group activities, independence is encouraged through plenty of free choice activities, social responsibilities within the group and opportunities to promote many important self help skills in a supportive way. The voice of the child is always encouraged with enthusiasm and interest.

Pre-School - Dressing UpA range of activities are available such as PE, Dance and Drama in our dedicated dance suite, Science, Art and Craft, Cookery and Music these in turn enhance the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

We promote the abilities of each child to become active learners and independent souls. Pre-School Teachers and the Team are looking forward to being a part of your child's life and aiding their transition to School smoothly and happily, thus assisting them on their next exciting journey with confidence and independence. Free Care for 3 & 4 year olds is available to all children. (more information is available on registration).

Physical & Dance Suite

A separate room dedicated to Physical Development. The Early Years Foundation Stage 2014 states that: "Physical Development involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food."

This dedicated Suite provides opportunities for children to explore, from sitting on their own to throwing a ball, children gradually develop the physical skills needed for their adult lives. Physical development includes both growth and the ability to use muscles and body parts for particular skills. Throughout the early years, children are learning to do new things with their bodies and this Suite encourages these skills, through dance, movement, Gross & Fine Motor Activities.

As children grow in their appreciation of the beauty of music & dance, they will acquire a gift that will bring them great pleasure. Music brings another dimension to their lives together with moment these will enhance children's development in many ways.
