The structure of the sessions has been chosen to give children an opportunity to enjoy stimulating activities. There are times for them to follow their adult-led activity and times to play independently or with friends.
We encourage a free-flow environment, which means that children can move between different activities and follow their interests. A range of different activities are set up each day in the classroom and in the outdoor learning area, and children can move between the two areas during the session.
Parents collect their child from Pre-School at the end of their session, when the parents have time to talk to their child's keyworker.
