Pre-School (3 – 4 years)
Our pre-school group occupies two interconnecting rooms which are staffed by fully trained Nursery Nurses overseen by an experienced Room Leader and supported by Senior Nursery Nurses. A staff-to-child ratio of 1:8 is maintained at all times.
The rooms have interconnecting shutters which allow the children to learn and play together when appropriate.
Emphasis is placed on developing a child’s all-round skills with a view to preparing them for the next stage in their education. Our experienced Pre-school team work closely with each individual child to extend their literacy, numeracy and communication skills, and strive to instil within them a genuine love of learning and a desire to discover as much as they can about the world around them. Through media such as music, role play, singing and art our children are given the opportunity to express themselves creatively.
Whilst every child is prepared thoroughly for the transition to their school of choice, play and exploration are still essential to their development. Our team provides them with a balance of both free and focused activities which extend their learning.
Norfolk House is run in a very open but structured manner which gives me the parent a great deal of confidence in leaving my child here. The staff appear to have a genuine concern for the children, and such my son warmed to them almost instantly which is a rarity.
