Welcome to pre-school
Pre-school is all about your little one getting ready for school. Using the Read Write Inc programme alongside school we build the children’s foundations before introducing letter sounds. Learning through play continues to be at the heart of what we do whilst also fostering interest in those more complex tasks such as beginning to write their own name, early maths and literacy skills.
Children in pre-school also take part in the supervised toothbrushing scheme. Children brush their own teeth once during the session. A Betterstart initiative, this has been proved to significantly improve oral health in children under 5. We have also found it improves co-operation with toothbrushing at home too!!
Off to school….
Being part of school, the children already have a familiarity and confidence when being around the school site. Taking part in assemblies with Reception class, accessing the school library and taking part in whole site events really embeds the children’s place within our setting. The children are buzzing with excitement when they come to move through to school, having already begun to form relationships with the teachers and support staff, it really is the natural next step.
