Welcome to the Pre-School Room (3-5 Years)
The 3’s room is a large space which holds many different resources and equipment to help children engage in different play every minute of the day. Children can choose what they would like to play with by selecting their own resources.
Within the room there is a focused educational area which helps children have a quiet area to concentrate on any focused work they might like to complete. Children are always encouraged to learn through play but this area gives them some structured work to help them get ready for a more educational focused environment i.e. school.
Children have the independent choice to play indoors or outdoors. They are encouraged throughout the day to use the fantastic outdoor space we have through the use of our free flow system. Children are encouraged to dress themselves appropriately for out-door play with lots of encouragement and support from the practitioners.
Children are encouraged to mark make their own name labels in a morning to self-register. They are then encouraged to place their name under their key persons label, this helps them to know they are apart of a group and a team within the nursery.
At lunch time, the children are encouraged to serve themselves and their friends. The children help give cutlery to their table of friends and pour their own water. Children then line up and collect their own puddings, this promotes independence and individual choice for each child and preparing them for the future.
