Preschool: Paddlings and Fledglings

3 - 4 years

These are our two classes for three and four year olds, which are divided into school years. The younger group (Paddlings) have a bright, spacious classroom as their base, enabling them to enjoy a wide range of stimulating activities such as role play, mark making and building. The older group (Fledglings) are those who are preparing to start school. Their classroom is in our large, airy main hall, which offers plenty of space for activities covering all seven areas of learning and development within the Early Years Foundation Stage. Both preschool classes use a secure outdoor classroom at the front of our building, as well as specially tailored Forest school lessons in our Forest school. The ratio here is one adult to eight children, and we receive funding for three and four year olds who are eligible.
