(Pre School)

Drawing of a rainbow

From the age of 3 the children join our pre-school group. During their sessions here they will continue the EYFS early years curriculum in accordance with government guidelines. However, our priority is for the children to have fun while they are learning. We have specific equipment to enable us to follow the government guidelines and will report to you on your little one's progress, using the Early Years Foundation Stage and through their learning journey. This is used by most schools in the area thus allowing a smooth transition to school. The pre school has been recognised and registered into the Good Practice file at Wiltshire Early Years Team as a centre of excellence. For pre-school in the term after your child's 3rd birthday you are entitled to receive an education grant from the government. This will reduce your childcare costs as you are entitled to up 15 hours of Free Entitlement which the grant pays for. We deliver this flexibly to meet parent needs and do not restrict you to sessions. See the link for details or ring the nursery and we will help you understand what you are entitled to.
