Our lower pre-school children have a 3 large rooms they use alongside a separate changing area and messy play area that leads directly from their room.   All activities take into consideration all aspects of the EYFS and children are given every opportunity to make their own choices with encouragement and help from staff and parents.

The children up to now will have had time focusing on the three core areas of learning: language and communication, physical development and personal, social and emotional development. We now also focus on the further 4 specific areas of learning: literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive art and design. 2 and 3 year olds are now more aware and interested in arts and craft, listening to stories and have a larger concentration span. The room offers many play opportunities including sand, water, messy play, music and movement, books, puzzles etc.

Activities for this age group include colouring, pencil control, number and letter recognition, puzzles etc. These activities are carried out to encourage all round development and to make learning fun.

We are very aware of the fact that we are a multicultural nursery. Each child is treated as an individual, and we make ourselves aware of, and share, each other's festivals and customs. We are always keen for parents to develop our own knowledge in this area, by talking to us of any of the activities they may be celebrating at home which we could continue in the Nursery. We feel it is important for each child to be aware of cultural differences and preferences, and to respect the beliefs of others in a friendly way
