3 – 5 years
Our biggest Dragon’s will transfer into our pre-school room the term after their third birth as they officially become pre-schoolers!
This room again has been carefully designed to support learning through play as the room is divided into activity areas that support the EYFS. The children are able to ‘free-flow’ between the areas and we feel the crossover between activity areas shows that children are using their cognitive skills to make connections in their learning.
We are very aware that there is a big difference between a child who has recently turned 3 to one who is due to start school. As a result of this we will sub-divide our pre-schoolers when the time is right to help prepare our older children for school.
We have a designated focus activity area within the class room where key workers can take their children when more concentration is needed for those important preparations for ‘big school’. Again, the children will be taken outside when ever they like with their key person.
