Themes and planning

Each half-term our pre school explores a single theme and puts the child at the heart of the planning process. Children build up their knowledge and skills over the theme and have many opportunities to develop strong associative links within the curriculum. We believe that this approach reinforces a child’s understanding of the different subjects and provides them with lifelong learning skills.  Together we strive to encourage high personal standards and nurture children who can use and apply essential skills in everyday life both collaboratively and independently.
