Pre School (4-5 year) By now, our pre-school children are well rounded, loveable, independant people in their own right. They have grown through the ranks and become confident youngsters, ready for the challenges that school offers. All of our pre- school children thoroughly enjoy this year... it is the coming of age in nursery life, and true and lasting friendships are formed and never forgotten. With strong emphasis on school preparation, our children continue to experience education through play, with the help of highly skilled staff and a visiting teacher. Carefully selected in- service training is given to all staff in kindergarten and strict assessment and monitoring procedures are followed... see 3- 4 year old tab for details. The Curriculum for Excellence continues throughout this final year at nursery and will then carry on until your child leaves school, whatever the age. Follow this link for information that will see your child through the whole Scottish education system.
We are devoted to making this the most interesting year for your child, whilst always providing them with gentle care and love they still require as young children. No child is pressurised into taking part, children help form their own assessment plans, they decide what they do in a day. This is the perfect learning environment at this stage of development. This is where 35 years of experience comes into play. Come along and get a feel for the kindergarten... we know that you will come away feeling inspired!
