For parents and children alike, the transfer of the educational experience from the family home to a moreformal environment can be a daunting time. Of course, it remains a cooperative process but we believe ourphilosophy and resources help make the transition as easy and enjoyable as possible. The term ‘pre-school’ can be something of a misnomer: our youngest pupils are as much a part of theschool as the eldest. However, they benefit from a beautiful, spacious and well-resourced classroom oftheir own.
With a wide range of resources and – most importantly – the care and support of committed, trained staff,our pre-school programme provides young learners with a safe and vibrant environment in which to learn,develop and adjust to school life.Our pre-school programme helps to prepare pupils for the challenges they will face later on; we focus onliteracy, maths, practical life, personal, social, physical and emotional development as well as expressivearts and design.
The International Early Years Curriculum is an innovative approach, recognising global best-practice andthe developmental needs of 3-5 years old. All learning and development goals focus around five LearningStrands:
