The Pre-School class is available for girls in the year before they are due to start primary school. In the Pre-School class, learning is underpinned by the Pre- School Curriculum and incorporates the six areas of learning language.
Each month, Pre-School cover the six areas of learning through a topic based approach. Topics include; Myself, Birthdays, Autumn, Winter, World Cultures, The Circus, Spring and Nursery Rhymes.
There are strong links between Pre-School and Prep and transition to Prep 1 is smooth.
A typical Pre-School day includes play based learning, outdoor play, story and shared singing time. We also organise cookery sessions, music lessons and physical development activities. Throughout the year Pre-School join with Pre-Pre-School for shared events including a Christmas performance and Sports Day.
Pre-School also enjoy going on class trips to places of interest and these visits help to enhance the topic learning. At the end of the school year Pre-School girls enjoy a graduation celebration and an end of year trip.
