Pre-School

Little Villagers Pre-School offers girls and boys aged 2 years to 5 years the opportunity to develop in a caring and secure environment.   Together with this, it follows a carefully planned curriculum, in line with the revised Early Years Foundation Stage.  This includes the following areas of learning:-

  • Personal and Social Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical
  • Maths     
  • Literacy
  • Understanding of the World
  • Expressive Arts
  • This is delivered daily through play engaging the children by using their individual interests.

The children have continuous access to a fenced outdoor play area attached to the pre-school.  The pre-school also has use of the infants school hall for indoor activities such as music and movement and obstacle courses.

The children have the opportunity to socialise and interact freely with both children and adults.  They are encouraged to respect other’s feelings and opinions and to be polite and helpful.

We believe that learning should be fun, and that children who are having fun will be learning.

The children are encouraged to develop their individual potential in a happy secure and welcoming environment.

Outings and Visits

Throughout the year we organise various outings for the children. We also arrange visits from the local community, including the Fire Brigade, Police and Ambulance Service.

All the children take an active role in our annual Nativity Play, and Sports Day, which will be held at the end of the summer term.

Equal Opportunities

We offer equal opportunities to all children regardless of gender, culture or religion.  We celebrate festivals throughout the year, as well as those relating to any child who attends our setting.

We welcome children with special needs, and will work in conjunction with parents and outside professionals in order to

meet their needs.
