Poppies Gardiners Rd Prepschool

Our programme caters for our older children,  inspiring a love of learning, confidence and respect for each other, our resources and the environment.  We teach children self help skills and independence and liase with local primary schools to ensure a smooth transition to school.

Our daily routine includes "Mini Groups" where the children are split into three different groups relating to their age and stage of development. This is an opportunity to share news and focus on activities such as maths and literacy skills, cutting and pencil control.  Our older children focus on getting ready for school with independence and self help skills.

Our lunchtime group is a chance for all the children to come together and enjoy music and movement and stories etc. We also work on learning strategies for active exploration. 

Afternoon group promotes physical activity including music and movement, drama and group games.

During our free play time children experience a variety of art activities and resources to support individual learning covering the 16 areas of play.  Our teachers carefully plan the indoor and outdoor environments to ensure the children are extended.
