Preschool is downstairs in the Old School, and is for children aged 3 – 5 years. There is a lovely conservatory where children enjoy science and discovery activities, growing plants, playing in the water, and painting.
Inside the main Preschool Room there are lots of other play-based learning activities, including imaginative play, music, construction toys, computers and technology, books and literacy, maths and numeracy, clay, dough, sand and early writing activities. Our Preschool are very busy, curious and learning all the time. We plan activities based on their interests and can be doing all sorts of different things on a given day, from baking our own bread to learning about dinosaurs, or planting vegetables in our garden.
Like the rest of the nursery, Preschool is open all year round. However, all children aged 3 and 4 years old are entitled to 15 hours a week of FREE term time nursery education and you can also access this at our Preschool. Children can attend for 5 mornings or 5 afternoons during term time at no cost to the parents. Or you can add a lunchtime hour and your child can attend for 3 school days, 9.00 a.m. to 3.00 p.m. at a cost of just £12 per week including a delicious home-cooked meal. Of course you can also use these free hours as part of a year round nursery place. Please contact us for more information.
