Children move to Pre-Reception the term after their 3rd birthday. Pre-Reception is term time with holidaycare and is billed on a termly basis.
Pre-Reception is where we prepare children for entry to King’s School Reception class. We develop knowledge, skills and confidence that will enable them to make a smooth transition to the next stage of their life at King’s.
From Pre-Reception children are taught by specialist staff, on a weekly basis in French, Music, and Ballet. They also commence Read, Write, Inc lessons which develops the children’s phonic knowledge foundation to prepare them their reading, spelling, comprehension and writing skills.
Outdoor learning come rain or shine, is also an integral part of daily life in the Early Years, with children making the most of our enclosed Forest School area with a qualified leader. They pop on their wellingtons and waterproofs to enjoy a rich outdoor programme which provides a wide variety of opportunities for the children to explore and investigate, helping them develop a love of nature and an enquiring mind.
King’s School and Nursery classrooms combine modern technology along side the latest teaching methods to ensure that children get the highest quality provision each day. Early Years classrooms are designed to provide a learning environment which is a pleasure to work and learn in.
Children have independent access to a wide range of materials and media. Each day provides a carefully planned mix of whole class, small group, individual and self-directed learning time.
The Pre-Reception and Reception children have a full day at School with a healthy lunch on the menu each day.
