We provide care and education for young children between the ages of 2 and 4+ years.
We currently have several children with additional needs, ranging from physical to educational and developmental disabilities. We pride ourselves on being able to accomodate any child who wishes to become a part of our loving pre-school environment thanks to our very well trained staff. Please see our Local Offer on the Links/Documents section to the right at the top of the page about Special Needs.
Our Breakfast and After School Club is for all children within the Early Years Foundation Stage including Reception children and up to year 6.
For all children expecting to progress into Reception class we offer a day every week, on a Monday, dedicated to developing a good relationship with school and making the transition as smooth as possible.
From 9.30am to 10am we go into Hornsmill Primary School and use the school hall to have a multi-skills session with Coach Craig at a small extra cost.
Following this, from 10am to 10.30am, all children have a PE session together.
At 11.45am we visit the Reception class and join in their lesson. The children gain a lot from this and it is often a lovely opportunity for them to see older friends from the pre-school who have gone into Reception.
At 2pm we have a visit from kind volunteer Stuart Williams, who is a qualified music teacher and committee member. The children have a wonderful time singing songs with actions along with the guitar!
