Our Pre-School Academy is tailor-made by our team of in-house childcare professionals and teachers to meet the emotional, social and physical needs of
children aged between 3 and 5 years old. We work closely with a network of local schools and offer a range of resources that ensures that every child in our care
experiences a seamless transition to reception or year 1 at your chosen school.
Through a stimulating and entertaining timetable filled with age appropriate activities, your child will be exposed to valuable learning opportunities every day
which are in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), Foundation Phase, and Curriculum for Excellence and National Care Standards.
Our Pre-school Academy activities include ICT, languages, numeracy, literacy, cooking, building and construction, role play, story time, music, PE and sports, arts and
crafts - plus much more.
We hold regular assemblies, circle time and show and tell sessions to encourage our children to share their views and opinions with others, helping them to develop
their communication skills as well as their confidence and self-esteem.
Each child is assigned a dedicated Key Person, who is responsible for ensuring their individual interests and needs are met and their skills developed. We have enhanced
child to staff ratios in our pre-school rooms, ensuring that there is always at least one qualified staff member for every eight children, an added benefit compared to
schools who have one to every 12.
To further enhance preparation for school and independence with dressing, children in our Academy wear the Academy uniform.
Our large, welcoming rooms are fully equipped with modern, age appropriate toys and resources that keep children entertained, engaged and happy, with various small, focused areas of learning and play to help develop specific areas of development.
