Big Frogs & Ducks Pre-School  Rooms

Our Pre-School

Pre-School

Located in 2 adjoining rooms, our Newbury Pre-School is split into 2 groups based on your child’s age. Children have the ability to safely roam freely between the two rooms, choosing resources that they wish to use such as a computer (without internet access), a craft area, role play area, messy room and quiet areas. There are 2 folding doors separating the Pre-School Rooms, allowing for separation during meals and sleep times.

Located in 2 adjoining rooms on the first floor,  children have the ability to safely roam freely between the two rooms of the Pre-school in Newbury, choosing resources that they wish to use such as a computer (without internet access), a craft area, role play area, messy room and quiet areas. There are 2 folding doors separating the Pre-School Rooms, allowing for separation during meals and sleep times.

Like the Nursery, the standard of childcare in the Pre-school has been recognised as having Outstanding elements and like the Nursery the Pre-School has outdoor sessions twice a day.

The Newbury Pre-School Rooms offer:  

  • Learning opportunities inside and outside through planned and child initiated play.
  • Encouragement to make their own choices and access their own resources.
  • Opportunities to develop their own independence – for example pouring their own drinks.
  • A shared library book scheme which introduces children to learning phonics.
  • Encouragement to recognise their name on water bottles, pegs and lunch places.
  • Plenty of mark making opportunities setting the foundations for writing their name.
  • Ongoing engagement through interesting topics so the children learn to sit and listen in preparation for school.
  • Access to French lessons.
  • Daily coverage of the 7 Ofsted Early Years Foundations Stages (EYFS) of learning, being; Communication and Language *  Mathematics * Physical development  *  Understanding of the world * Personal, Social and Emotional development * Expressive arts and design * Literacy.
