Pre-School

Every Child Matters

We believe all children deserve the opportunity to achieve their full potential. Our Pre-Nursery class, for children aged from 20 months to 2 years, is led by three qualified teachers and there is one adult for every four children. This means that pupils receive a high level of individual and personalised care, whilst learning and developing in the company of their friends.

          We follow the British Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. The curriculum is based around four key principles:

  • every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured;
  • children learn to be independent and strong through positive relationships;
  • children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between school and home;
  • children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and all areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected.

 

          Right from the beginning we help children to:

  • be healthy;
  • stay safe;
  • enjoy and achieve;
  • make a positive contribution to their school and community.

The Pre-School Environment

Children must be offered and allowed to engage in exciting and challenging activities, which support and extend their learning and development. They must have a full and stimulating environment to encourage a range of play, exploration and talk. They need to be able to choose, create, investigate, explore, initiate and persist with activities. We believe that children are active learners from birth and that if we provide them with the right environment, support and experiences, it will help to encourage their curiosity, imagination and creativity. We also need to ensure that we stimulate each child emotionally and intellectually by providing the best circumstances to promote active learning. We have designed our Pre-Nursery classroom to be cosy and exciting and it is structured in such a way as to promote a child’s independence, decision-making and problem solving. The environment is organised into clearly defined areas to accommodate different activities appropriate to the development and competence of the children. Areas are divided by the use of low level shelving that reduces distraction and allows them to become engrossed in their activities.

 

Immersed in the English Language

Children who are immersed from a young age have the best advantage in developing the pronunciation, structure and intonation of the English language easily and successfully. Children who learn a second language from an early age consistently show superior mathematical conceptualisation, problem solving skills, verbal acumen, and creativity. Empowered with a second language and appreciation for cultural diversity, your child will be ready to embrace our multicultural world.
