Ante Pre-School and Pre-School Nursery

We welcome children from the age of 3-4 into our Ante Pre-School and 4-5 into our Pre-School Nursery. Our Ante Pre-School and Pre-School Nurseries help take your child onto the next step in their educational experience. Children in the Ante Pre-School are usually aged 3 years, while our Pre-School is for children aged between 4 and 5 years. During these important years we ensure that the aims of the curriculum are co-ordinated to provide a series of developmental play and structured activities that help children prepare for Primary School.

We aim to provide a happy, safeand stimulating environment, where children can take ownership of their own learning. We hope to provide exciting and challenging activities within a well-resourced environment where your child can become a confident individual, a successful learner, a responsible citizen and an effective contributor.

The children’s needs are at the very centre of our daily planning. We follow the principles from the Curriculum for Excellence by using an ‘active’ approach to helping children develop vital skills, knowledge and develop a positive attitude to learning. This challenges the child’s thinking using real life and imaginary situations. It takes advantage of the opportunities of learning presented by:
› Spontaneous play
› Planned, purposeful play
› Investigating and exploring
› Events and life experiences
› Focussed learning and teaching

All areas of the Curriculum can be developed through play as this is how children learn to come to terms with the world around them. The curriculum we offer is varied with a focus on Mathematics, Literacy, English and Health. Parents will be able view their child’s portfolio of work throughout the year and keep it as a memento of their child’s Nursery year.
