Pre-School

Kindergarten Stage 2

Pre-school is for children aged 3 and up.

Please find available to download the some pre-school information and autumn term plan, and also the presentation from the pre-school parents' evening of 13th September 2016.

Children attend five mornings (8:30-11:30) or five afternoons (12:30-3:30) a week. Children are admitted once they have had their third birthday and places become available. 

Our innovative "log cabin" reception and pre-school classrooms provide excellent opportunities for a curriculum that is delivered both in and outdoors, all year round. There are three external zoned learning areas and a wood. The "ambience" of the builing and environment never fails to attract positive comments from visits. "Being physically creative" has its foundations laid here!

The first half an hour of the pre-school morning of afternoon session allows the children to enter pre-school at their own pace and to join in with activities which are available to them before all children are called together for registration. This also allows time for parents to speak to the teacher and tro ensure that their child is settled and ready for their morning/afternoon at pre-school. The children in pre-school experience whole class learning time every day as well as a daily session of letters and sounds. They also have adult-guided sessions and child-initiated activities available every day in both the inside and the outside areas. The teaching and activities available to the children are topic-led and are planned alongside the Reception topics to allow continuity of the learning experience from pre-school into reception. The pre-school children have regular experience of playing in the reception building and meeting the reception staff before the term in which they are due to start school.

If you are interested in your child starting in Somers Park Kindergarten, please complete the application form and return to the school office.
