Pre-School (Bears)

This is an example of what happens during the day - it is not rigid and we always ensure that we meet the childns individual needs.  We

always encourage the children to join in with all focused activities and change the activity to meet the individual learning level of each

While the emphasis is now more on promoting learning, the atmosphere is relaxed and the children still progress at their own pace.

 

Teaching is informal but carefully planned and structured following the required guidelines.

 

Building a child's confidence, self respect and respect for others plays a huge part in the aims of the nursery.

 

The children are taught to express their feelings and natural curiosity about the world and everything in it.
