Freeland Pre-school is situated in the grounds of Freeland CE Primary school. Welcoming children aged 2 – 5 years, the pre-school works in close partnership with the school; following the same curriculum, which aims to provide a seamless transition for the children into the Foundation Stage class.
One of the biggest assets is the dedicated team of Early Years Practitioners who are caring and welcoming. They take the time to get to know not only your child, but the whole family – building up a close relationship. With an understanding that parents are a child’s main educator they will work closely with you to ensure that your child reaches their full potential.
Children are active learners who learn through play. Freeland Pre-school believe that children learn in the ‘here and now’. Using the Early Years Foundation Stage, learning moments are extended with fun and stimulating opportunities.
Freeland Pre-school believe that outdoor play encourages skills such as problem solving and negotiating risk, which are important for child development. For this reason, much of the play and activities centres around the large garden and outdoor area. These high-quality learning experiences take place no matter what the weather.
“From my first look around this pre-school I knew I had found somewhere incredibly special for my girls to start their schooling. The staff, the setting, the garden, the fun and varied activities and the close link with the Foundation stage classroom next door- it really is the perfect pre-school. I am going to be very sad to not have a child there come September.” Parent Feedback
