Little Crofters Pre-school
Children move into our ‘Pre-school’ classroom for the academic year of their 4th Birthday. Pre-school offers a wealth of new, challenging learning opportunities in a more structured learning environment. Our spacious, open-plan classroom with free-flow access to our adjacent all-weather outdoor area ensures your child has exciting learning opportunities. Children attend for a minimum of five morning sessions to experience a careful blend of adult-directed and child-initiated activities.
Teachers in Pre-school ensure that Literacy and Mathematics are daily priorities, ensuring a solid foundation for education. Many children learn letter sounds and begin to blend them to read simple two and three letter words during their Pre-school year, ensuring they are well prepared for Reception.
Weekly visits to the School's Sports Hall enable exciting opportunities for gymnastics, games and dance. Your child will also benefit from weekly French, Music and Forest School sessions led by specialist School staff and a visit to the Pre-Prep library.
Your child will join School staff for a delicious, nutritionally balanced lunch in the School's dining room where good table manners are encouraged.
You can opt your child into any number of afternoon sessions where they will benefit from additional Music, French and Forest School lessons with specialist School staff. Positive behaviour, confidence and independence are nurtured in all children, enabling your child to move happily into Reception.
