I'm worried that my child won't settle in easily – can you help?

Yes, our teachers work closely with parents to help each child to comfortably settle in. Children come to pre-school with their guardians for at least two visits when they start. Every child is assigned a key person to keep a special look-out for them.

What will my child do at pre-school?

We provide a wide range of child- and adult-led activities, following the curriculum of our school and focussing on learning through play. Activities on offer during a typical session might include: sand and water play, jigsaws, construction toys, dressing-up and role playing, arts and crafts, singing and playing musical instruments, outdoor play (in our multi-purpose-built, enclosed area). Children sometimes participate in cooking or gardening activities. As every child is unique we aim to include children's interests and incorporate those into our planning.

What happens in a 'typical session'?

A typical day would start with children greeting their teachers, friends once their daily attendance has been registered.
This would be followed by children participating in a balance of child-initiated and adult-led activities. Snack time normally begins around 10.00 am. Special care would be taken for specific dietary requirements.

Children would be encouraged to flow freely between multiple play areas for over an hour. This would be followed by reciting kids stories, singing time to help improve their communication and listening skills within a group.

The children and staff all sit down to have lunch together. We then sing our goodbye song before the children are collected by their Parents or guardians.

Extended afternoon sessions for pre enrolled children comprise of further learning and fun activities.

What does my child's key person do?

Every child is assigned a key person before they start at the pre-school. She has a special interest in your child, helps them to settle in, works with you to plan their learning activities and keeps a record of their development. (Every child is also assigned a back-up key person.)
