As your child enters our preschool room at approximately 3 years of age dependent on their development, they will continue to follow the EYFS and working towards becoming ’school ready’. Whilst still learning through play and having fun, there is a more structured routine, with children working in groups and becoming accustomed to paying attention for longer periods of time. Our preschoolers are encouraged to become more independent, inquisitive and have a love for learning. Being outdoors is a large part of nursery life and preschoolers spend as much time in the fresh air as they can manage, and the free-flow access to the garden supports this.
Their social skills continue to develop as they form real bonds of friendships while they play and learn together. In this room, they will also begin to learn about responsibility through self-serving meals, deciding on group activities and taking part in our Christmas concerts and summer fete.
