Come along for a visit
The best way for you to see the Pre-School in action is to come along for a visit. Please contact us to arrange a suitable time. We suggest that you come along with your child at about 9.30am (when the other children have arrived and are registered) and stay with us for about an hour or longer if you would like. We will show you around the Pre-School and if your child feels comfortable s/he can join the other children in play time. You will get the chance to meet the staff and ask any questions you may have. We also hold an Open Day each year, please contact us for details.
Starting Pre-School can be quite an experience for young children. Some take to it like a duck to water, whilst others need help and time to get settled in. We want your child to look forward, and enjoy coming, to Pre-School so we follow a new starters system that gradually introduces your child to the Pre-School environment so they start their education feeling happy and settled:
- A few weeks before their start date, children are invited to come and visit us along with their parent/carer for a session. You will stay with your child during this session.
- Once your child turns 2 they can begin at Pre-School. There follows a settling in process where parents/carers are invited to stay with your child until both you and the Pre-School staff are happy that your child is ready to be left. This can take anything from one session to a few weeks. Our main objective is to ensure that your child is happy and contented.
- Once your child is settled in the number of weekly sessions they attend can be increased (space permitting).
Start dates can be flexible and do not necessarily have to be the beginning of term.
