Girl-DoctorsAt Sandygate Pre-School we provide a warm friendly environment for your child to learn through play.  We have a purpose built environment where our sole focus is providing excellent quality childcare for children.  Your child will develop their social and teamwork skills and grow in confidence and independence.

We follow the early years foundation stage curriculum, planning activities appropriate for our children and then tailoring them to the needs of individual children.

Each half of term we follow a theme and weave this into our activities. For example we have used themes such as food or other countries, and based our art, number and physical activities around them. The kinds of activities we get up to are:

      • Art & Craft, lots of mess!
      • Music and Movement, singing and instruments
      • Sand, water and outside play
      • Listening, speaking, stories and rhymes
      • Role Play
      • Investigating colour, shape, number and more
      • Cooking
      • Physical education in the School Hall
      • Yoga Classes

ABC-GirlWe try to have special events to fit in with our themes and events going on in the world around us.  For example, we have celebrated Chinese new year, St Georges day and Comic relief.  These are really engaging for the children and really stick in their minds.

Our sessions run Monday to Friday, 9-12 and 12-3.

The term after your child turns 3, they become eligible for 15 hours funded care from us, which equates to 5 sessions.  The process of applying for funding is quite straightforward, as we have to do most of it on your behalf.

To join Pre-School you should contact us in the first instance to have a look around.  You can go on our waiting list by filling in an application form at any time from birth onwards. The term before your child starts, we will arrange a taster session for them (and you) to join a session for an hour or so that they can understand what “Pre-School” is all about.
