Our school has a thriving Foundation Stage Unit.

We can accept children from the age of 2 years and can offer funded places.  Non funded places care charged at £3.50 per hour.

Children can have a hot meal cooked on site for a cost of £2.20 for a main and a pudding or a packed lunch can be brought in from home.

Welcome back to Early Years, Autumn 2017!

Great news at out FSU: we have acquired two super-cute girl guinea pigs. They have been handled and are ready for strokes and cuddles, under adult guidance, so the children will be learning how to care for pets and respect living things. We all thought of good names for our guinea pigs and we pulled the two winners from a hat. They are called Biscuit and Badger!

This term, our topic is "Under the Sea." We have already set up a submarine role play corner and done sandy sea pictures. The water tray has been transformed into an under the sea world and we have been sharing stories, such as "The Wish Fish," "The Rainbow Fish" and "The Jolly Olly Octopus."

We have plenty of exciting activities lined up for the children to enjoy, which can be viewed on the planning pages. If you have any interesting items linked to our topic, please bring them in to show, or send them in for us to share with the children.

Look out for our  Foundation Stage Unit News Letter, which will be out soon! It will have details of fund raising events and activities to come!

In our pre-school we encourage children to develop their communication skills with plenty of talk in every possible way, such as games, conversation, stories and role play. To encourage your child to develop speech, we promote "Let's Talk More Everywhere" activities. Each month, the Let's Talk More " poster will be displayed, with great ideas to encourage your children to talk!
