Wise Owls - Preschool

Little Owls Pre-school is open from 8.00a.m to 6.00p.m. Extra hours available to suit your needs.

The Pre-school is designed for children in the last year before starting school and is run by a full-time specialist in Early Years education. The Wise Owls have designed a polo shirt uniform and book bag which are available for purchase.

The Pre-School room is divided into areas to allow the children to learn through play, alone or in small groups. Little Owls will provide equipment, toys and natural materials so that the children can explore and learn about the world around them.

The team in the Pre-School room follow the Early Years Foundation Stages (EYFS) :-

 
  • Communication and language;
  • Physical development;
  • Personal, social and emotional development;
  • Literacy;
  • Mathematics;
  • Understanding of the world;
  • Expressive arts and design.

Activities are designed around these principles and are tailored to meet each child's individual needs, encouraging them to progress.

Each child will be assigned a trained key carer, who will observe and support them and share all their findings with parents or carers throughout the year, along with termly progress reports and Parent's Evenings.

The Pre-School team liaise closely with surrounding schools to ensure that the transition between Little Owls and school goes smoothly. The children will be provided with three healthy meals a day; brunch at 10:15, delicious lunch and pudding (12:30) and a varied tea time selection at 16:15.

See our summer menu for further details. Your children will also get the opportunity to experience our Forest School and many other exciting activities running throughout the week. We have a library van that visits every Thursday and all children are encouraged to take a book home to read.
