Preschool

A happy preschool childAt preschool age, your child’s independence and confidence is growing every day. They are making huge strides towards the academic and developmental skills they will need to start school, and our experienced practitioners help support them on that journey.

Our unique Ready for School programme fosters an enjoyment of early literacy and maths, with our Growing Readers, Writers and Mathematicians Enhancements helping children to recognise letters, words and numbers in their environment. Play activities range from guided to child-led, giving your little one the opportunity to think independently and make discoveries for themselves.

Our approach to development is holistic, meaning that we don’t just focus on academic achievement. Every activity is an opportunity for learning, from developing independence through self-serving and using cutlery at mealtimes, to learning how to make relationships, express their thoughts, solve problems and think creatively.

Most of our nurseries feature activity-rich outdoor spaces, with a mixture of water-play walls, sandpits, tricycles, climbing frames, balance beams and more. Depending on the location, some nurseries take preschool children on regular trips out to local parks or woodland areas, supporting them in their discovery of the natural world.

Parent partnerships are important to us, as we understand that you know your child best. Our home link activities keep you involved in your child’s learning, ranging from Play and Learning at Home activity cards or a nursery library system, to regular stay and play days where guidelines allow.

Safety is our number one priority. All our practitioners are First Aid trained and all nurseries have specialist SEND staff for children who require additional support due to special educational needs.

Each child has a Learning Journey that is kept up-to-date with details of new achievements, skills and lessons. This allows you to look back on how far your child has come, while helping us to plan new and exciting opportunities for their development.

We are excited to be part of your child’s journey and look forward to meeting you and your little one soon.
