Our pre-school/nursery age children are our Lollipops. Again, your child may be ready to enter this room anytime from 2/12 years onwards depending on their development, or they may be over 3 before the time is right. This is all discussed with you along the way. Our pre-schoolers are educated to the highest standards by our well qualified and trained staff. Our Nursery/Pre-School owner is a qualified former outstanding Infant School Head Teacher and Montessori Teacher and each child's learning is individually overseen to ensure the best curriculum is devised for your child's age and stage of development. Children are encouraged to learn through play, but also during this important pre-school phase, they are nurtured and challenged to learn with fun and exciting activities.
In our Day Nursery we have a Montessori learning room where Montessori activities support children in learning to read, write and count, as well as supporting their development in all areas of the Early Years framework. Your children leave us fully prepared to take on their new learning journey as they move into formal schooling.
