Pre-School and Nursery 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Pre-School and Nursery
Welcome to our wonderful pre-school. We offer places for children who are 2 to 4 years old. Our Nursery (Little Buds) room is run by Miss Peak and provides a wonderful, nurturing space for our 2 year olds. Our Pre-School (Saplings) room, run by Mrs Jones and Mrs Drake is where our 3-4 year olds learn and play.
Teacher contact emails:
To enquire about a place for your child, please contact Mrs Reynolds in the school office on 01244 268600.
We encourage the children to be as independent as possible in pre-school and there are many things you can do to support this at home. For example, encouraging your child to dress and toilet themselves independently, practice using cutlery, putting on shoes and hanging up coats and bags.
This term our learning is based around the story 'I'm Going to Eat This Ant'. We immerse ourselves in this text, both through Literacy learning and within the learning environment. We keep you informed of our learning each week through emailing and uploading weekly letters onto this page every Friday, as well as adding photos to Twitter, so that you can be involved in your child's learning alongside us!

Please note- some days our timetable will differ.
- Please ensure your child has brought a waterproof suit and wellingtons into school; a large part of our day involves being outdoors.
- Please ensure that your child has a small healthy snack for the afternoon. E.g. vegetable sticks, cherry tomatoes, breadsticks, cheese cubes, raisins, dried fruit. On Friday we have a small treat!
- Please send in a water bottle each day with your child’s snack. Our school policy is water only, so please can we ask that you do not send in juice.
- We have a lovely family photograph display board in class. Please could you send a photograph of your child with their family that we could add to the board, this helps your child to feel at home within our setting and gives them a sense of belonging.
Please remember that you can get in touch with us via Class Dojo, over the telephone and via email on firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com we love to hear from you and if you have any worries, concerns or would just like to share something about your child. Our aim is to work with you to achieve the best possible outcomes for your child.
