Nursery care for Pre-schoolers Ages 3 - 5 Years
Nearly ready for school...
The last year before Primary School is much more structured for 3-5 year old, and everything they learn prepares them for the next step. The group will then move on to Primary together to make the transition easier.
We include things like a homework pack, registration time, reading & writing their own name, all of which teaches them responsibility. Uniform is compulsory to help the children get ready for school and identification for extracurricular trips.
We have the same record keeping with Tapestry that they have had since they arrived, and the Nursery manager will conduct reviews and observations, to identify area which need improving. A transition form will be completed at the end of the year to help pass information on to their primary school.
More structured learning in a new environment
The Pre-school class is set out like a reception room with labels and pictures on draws to help with recognition. Responsibilities such as tidying up and sharing are taught, along with granting the children the independence to use the facilities.
More enforced rules and boundaries are put in place, such as sharing, walking not running, taking turns, and being polite Children are set more structured challenges and activities such homework which could include copying letters, reading, shape sheets, number sheets and alphabet sheets.
We always encourage children to choose the areas where they would like to play and learn using something they enjoy. For example, some children prefer to sit at the maths table to learn maths, whilst some children prefer to learn maths through construction.
