Preschool / Under the Sea

Our preschool group is located in the main nursery building and is for children aged 3-5 years. We are open 8-6 on weekdays for about 49 weeks a year.


Our nursery routine starts with a 'Wake up, Shake up' after breakfast, followed by 'Island Time' (smaller groups led by the children's key person) to welcome everyone in. During the day we have child-initiated play, adult-led activities, story and song times as well as meal times. Our meals are prepared on the premises, sometimes with help from the preschool children. 

We plan our activities around themes throughout the year, often based on children's interests and experiences, with a 'Book of the Month' and relevant songs to enhance our learning.

(Please note, there is also a term-time-only room, which is open 9-3 each weekday for 38 weeks a year for children aged 2-5 years.)
