Pre-School can accommodate 24 children with a ratio of 1:8.
The children are able to choose what they like to do each day, but are encouraged to take part in learning activities such as writing, painting, drawing and reading. Group sessions will encourage skills such as listening and discussing. The children are given the opportunity to develop their independence by washing their own hands, putting on their own aprons, havng access to the daily snack bar etc.
We aim that by the end of your child’s time at Little Acorns they are able to move on, feeling confident and ready for school. The children are able to free-flow throughout the morning with direct access into the garden, allowing them to chose if they would like to play indoors or outdoors.
Each week the Pre-School children visit the school library where they can enjoy some time discovering new books and also experiencing the atmosphere of school. They are all able to choose a book to bring back to nursery for the week.
Extra classes maybe offered to the pre-school children at different times of the year, these may include music, movement and computers. All parents will be notified of these in advance.
