PreSchool

Treetops Pre School welcomes children from approximately 3 – 4 years old. At the end of your child’s Pre-school year we hold a graduation ceremony/concert. This is a lovely end to the pre-school year before there transition to school.

Activities

Children in Pre School enjoy a variety of activities including free play, circle time, role-play, music and movement, sand and water, arts & crafts and outings. French and swimming are also offered to our Pre-School Children. Play underpins the delivery of the “Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS)” and we aim to provide all children with a broad and balanced range of experiences in order that they develop socially, emotionally, intellectually, physically and morally. Staff therefore provide a balance of planned and unplanned opportunities (indoors and outdoors) that will allow the children to encounter positive learning across all the areas of Learning and Development. Pre school children have access to a wide range of activities and resources to expand their learning including ICT and an indoor full size playhouse. They go on outings outside the nursery environment including trips to local parks and train station to develop their curiosity and sense of adventure within their local environment.

Parent Information

Parents of the Pre School children are always welcome to speak to our staff. We pride ourselves on good communication with parents. We provide a daily sheet so parents know what your child has got up to that day as well as provide information about the weekly topics so parents are able to continue their child’s learning at home. Further to this, all children at the nursery have a learning journal as well where we capture all that you child is achieving and learning. More structured communication occurs at our annual Parents evenings which have proved very popular, allowing us to get together for an informal chat. These are especially important in Pre School to discuss your child’s up and coming transition to Primary School. It is our policy is to have a strong link with the primary school, which your child will be attending to ensure that the transition from nursery to school is a smooth one.
