Pre School

The Pre-School opens during the same hours as the Nursery (8am to 6pm) and welcomes children once they leave Big Learners until they go to school. Children can join Acres at this point for either full days or part days (8am - 1pm or 1pm - 6pm) but there is very limited availability of places. The children are divided into three age groups ensuring that all activities are age-appropriate. All children are offered lots of opportunity to take part in pre-reading and pre-writing activities in preparation for primary school.

Our bright and spacious Pre-School building was opened in August 2008 and offers excellent facilities for learning through play, including french, dance, gardening and music sessions. Specialist teachers attend Acres for the dance, gardening and french sessions.

The large decking area overlooking the garden allows free-flow access for the children at all times and is ideal for all sorts of activities, from painting and messy play to planting seeds and caring for our animals.

All children in the Nursery have access to the lovely big Garden Room which occupies the area above Pre-School. The Pre-School uses this room as their Dining Room too. This stunning room has a huge picture window and provides the perfect facility for music and movement, dance sessions and indoor soft play, as well as being home to our Holiday Club.

Our intention is for the children to be confident youngsters prepared and ready for when their time comes to go to "big" school.
