Four-Forest's Pre-School department gives young children their all important introduction to learning. We provide a caring, happy and stimulating environment in which every child matters.
We believe that every child has the right to an individual and high-quality education that encourages our children to become life-long learners.
From the age of three years an effective introduction to concepts which are central to successful learning is provided, without subjecting the children to any feeling of pressure.
Play is the language of childhood and is an essential tool. In a carefully planned setting, this tool is used to teach children how to learn, how to find things out, how to turn interests into knowledge and how to develop fully their natural aptitude for learning.
Classroom activities include sand, water, modelling, arts and craft, construction, books, games, songs, puzzles and role-play in our child-size two storey chalet. As the children develop, we foster their skills in reading, language and numbers to provide a secure basis for numeracy and literacy. Four-Forest's Pre-School follows the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.
At Four-Forest we offer a standard three morning programme for the three year olds (highlighted in the plan below in green) and a five morning programme for the four year olds. These sessions finish at 11.45am.
All children can however, also attend the full day programme on your chosen days. Please see the plan below:
Pre-School children may visit the Early Bird Club which opens at 7.45am. The morning begins at 8.45am and ends at 11.45am. There is a mid-morning break on the playground, during which children enjoy their snacks and drinks.
Children and teachers eat lunch together in their own dining room and afterwards enjoy nap time/quiet time before playtime outside.
The afternoon programme finishes at 3.15pm, unless the children are registered to join the after school club which finishes at 6.00pm.
