Our preschool room is designed to keep supporting our children to be calm, confident and independent children through free, indoor and outdoor learning each day. We work on a 1:8 ratio with a maximum of 14 children. Our Preschool practitioners will now start preparing children for their huge step into the academic system known as school. However, we do not allow this to stop children from being children and we most definitely do not reduce their access to quality free play learning opportunities.
Studies have proven that children who remain in a play-based for longer become more confident adolescents and have greater academic outcomes. children learn best through play and aim to enhance their life skills and level of responsibilities, whilst introducing them to the model of a classroom, and we must stress, we are only introducing them to this system to ensure it is not an unfamiliar experience once they move onto school.
In preschool, children will learn to strengthen their social and emotional development. Preschool provides an environment for children to explore, gain a sense of self, play with peers and build self-confidence. Children learn they can accomplish tasks and make decisions without the help of their parents.
In our preschool we have skilled practitioners lead by our graduate room leader Ellie.
Oral hygiene is practised with our preschoolers where they brush their teeth at least once a day.
