3-5's Area

Our pre-school room caters for children aged 3-5 years and we have places for 24 children in this age group.  In here we follow the foundation stage for children's learning and plan the activities based around the early learning goals.  We aim to encourage social skills and cooperation through play and learning with a strong emphasis on role-play.

 

Our pre school room includes areas for the following activities:-

 

•Exploration and role play,

 

•Quiet times,

 

•Mark making,

 

•Messy activities,

 

•Construction play,

 

•Small world play,

 

•Reading and finding out about books,

 

•Information technology

 

•Music

A key worker system is used in this age group and weekly planning incorporates group time to enable the key workers to plan appropriate challenging activities to help develop the children in their group.   Regular progress reports are shared with parents/carers on their child's development.

 

The children in this age group have access to an outdoor sensory garden in which they are able to explore and discover nature, wildlife and seasonal changes.
