Squirrels (40 months +)

Squirrels’ is our pre-school room and is an ideal setting for your child when they getting ready for the transition to school.

The room is managed by our qualified Early Years teacher, who works very closely with the team within the room led by a Senior Nursery Nurse and although the children still learn through play, they are also introduced to other activities more associated with an education environment, such as phonics.

Building your child’s independence is high on the agenda in Squirrels so along with the tactics used in our other nursery rooms we now introduce further independence building approaches such as a registration board where you child will record their own attendance on our chart and food trays which are tagged with your child’s name and it is their responsibility to find their meals. These slight changes can also help them settle at school because they already have the same routines.

Extra special treats await..!

As an extra special treat, we also arrange for a pantomime to be performed in the Squirrel’s room every year at Christmas time – and we also try to arrange a few additional surprises throughout the year.
