Learning Today to Discover Tomorrow

Pre School Curriculum

Children experience the nursery curriculum entirely through play and the activities provided

have been designed to promote your child's growth and development in the following key areas:


Early Mathematical Development

Personal, Social & Emotional Development

Physical Development & Movement

The Arts

Language Development

The World Around Us 



Activities are designed to cover many of these areas simultaneously, rather than being broken into distinct, subject areas. Amongst other learning outcomes, the activities are designed to stimulate children's natural curiosity and offer them the chance to explore and enjoy natural materials. Their understanding and use of language is enriched and they are helped to observe, listen and concentrate. Through the activities, children will develop muscular strength and coordination and the development of manipulative skills is encouraged.
