Little Oaks is for children who have just had their 3rd birthday. This room encourages children to work together, developing friendships and offering a steady adjustment to the larger Pre-school room.
The introduction of pencil control, computer play and adult led activities promote further learning, based around free choice and creative abilities.
All Pre-school rooms focus on helping children to develop within the 7 areas of learning; Personal, Social and Emotional, Communication and Language, Physical Development, Mathematics, Literacy, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
Expansive, monthly topics are determined for both Little and Big Oaks, and activities for both rooms are usually similar. The topic gives a focus for various educational and creative activities to stem from.
Weekly ‘Show & Tell’ sessions are always enjoyable. Children are all asked to prepare a little speech about their chosen object.
Barnabus Bear’s weekly adventures is always a talking point. A child is selected every week to take Barnabus Bear home. When Barnabus Bear returns, we talk about what he has been up to whilst on his travels.
The children love to explore our outdoor areas, we have a newly developed outdoor play area with special designed chalk boards, a pirate ship climbing frame/swings, a mud kitchen and our little wooden play house.
