Children are encouraged to have healthy snacks and water is available at all times. We sit down to a group snack time around 10 o'clock. We have fruit, vegetables, yoghurts, cheese, humus, pitta bread, crumpet and toast on a regular basis.



We have a good-sized indoor classroom with a range of appropriate activities and resources. We also have access to the larger hall where we can use bikes, scooters and prams. Our outdoor spaces are frequently used so children are requested to bring in spare wellington boots and waterproof clothing. Outside we have dens, a mud kitchen, ball run, patio and large grass area for a range of outdoor activities.


Online Learning Diary

Every child has an online learning diary and developmental forms that follows their time at Pre-school. These are regularly updated and you are welcome to contribute to them. The online learning diary includes examples of their work, photographs and observations and can be shared with all the family. See Tapestry
