Busy Bees (Pre-School)

Our pre-school provides a warm, friendly, fun and caring environment and our aim is to develop independence skills, confidence and self esteem, which will later help your child to thrive, especially when starting school.

Within our daily routine we provide a variety of activities which relate to the foundation stage. We ensure we provide individualised learning development and care that enhances the development of all children.

All areas of the foundation stage are delivered through planned, purposeful play with a balance of adult led and child initiated activities, which is all about giving children free choice. This can also be seen throughout our snack times where we encourage rolling snack.

Observations of the children are done on a daily basis which helps us to plan activities to further the children’s development.
During the day we do have regular structured activities, one example is circle time this is a very valuable activity where we talk about the day, date, month and weather. We welcome everybody who is in pre-school at that time, not just by saying ‘hello’ in English, but we try and see how many different languages we know. This helps us when we do French as well on a Tuesday afternoon at 1pm. We ensure we make the most of the outdoor area, by going outside at least twice a day no matter what the weather!!
