At Teddies Nursery our preschool welcomes children from approximately three to four years old. Children in preschool enjoy a variety of activities including free play, circle time, role-play, music and movement, sand and water, arts and crafts and outings.
We provide a broad and balanced range of experiences to help children develop socially, emotionally, intellectually, physically and morally.
Preschool children have access to a wide range of resources to expand their learning including ICT. They go on outings outside the nursery environment including trips to local parks and attractions, to develop their curiosity and sense of adventure.
At the end of your child’s preschool year we hold a graduation ceremony/concert. This is a lovely way to celebrate their time at our nursery before they transition to school.
Parents of the preschool children are always welcome to speak to our staff. We pride ourselves on good communication with parents. We provide a daily online report so parents know what their child has got up to that day. All children have a learning journal where we capture all that your child is achieving and learning. We also provide information about the weekly learning topics so parents can continue their child’s learning at home.
More structured communication occurs at our annual parents’ evenings which allow us to get together for an informal chat. These are especially important in preschool as they give us the opportunity to discuss the transition to primary school. We build strong links with primary schools to ensure that the transition from nursery to school goes smoothly.
