Why Pre-school ??

Learn through play 
All children learn through play as it encourages them to explore, be creative, helps them to use their imagination and show interest in new things.
The Pines pre-school will offer a whole range of activities throughout the day for children to choose and get involved in. This includes messy play, outside play, quiet time with books, arts and craft, role play, creative play … the list goes on.

Why Pre-school ??

Build and develop relationships
Children at pre-school not only build relationships with other children but also other adults. Once at school children need to accept teachers as authority figures and recognise that their reactions to teachers are different to how they interact with their parents. Pre-school gives a good base for building these kinds of relationships and understanding the differences.

Why Pre-school ??


Routine and structure
Any kind of early years education setting has routine and structure to the day. This is great for children as having routine and a predictable day helps them feel secure. They know what to expect and therefore become more confident in themselves and their surroundings. It also helps children understand the concepts of ‘before’ and ‘after’ and teaches them to wait until a certain time to do a certain activity.
