Our Pre-School children follow the Curriculum for Excellence preparing them for their eventual move to school, supported by a staff ratio of 1:8. This is a far more structured routine, with children working in small groups and learning to concentrate for longer periods of time. They also become far more independent, pouring their own drinks, serving their own food, laying the table and learning how to use a computer.
Topics covered are based on the following seven areas of learning: physical development, personal, social and emotional development, communication and language, literacy, expressive arts and designs, understanding of the world and mathematics.
Our pre-schoolers have their own ‘Science Lab’ – here they will be encouraged to learn, explore, discover and enjoy the natural world, habitats, science and on a daily basis begin to understand about the world around them and what FUN it can be!
