The Explores - Pre school

Getting ready for school

Our three and four year olds have a very special pre-school provision. Resources inspired on Montessori and Reggio Emilia approaches are part of this provision. Children approach mathematic, literacy and other core subjects in a playful and calm environment which invites children to concentrate and explore new concepts and ideas which contribute to prepare our children for reception year at infant school. 

Our preschool children have carefully planned activities in preparation for reception year. There are plenty of opportunities throughout the day when pre-school children can participate in activities and play with peers from the same age group. Resources and games are inspired by the best research and proven educational approaches to support readiness for school.
