Preparing For School

Two terms before your child is due to attend school they will be encouraged to take part in our preschool sessions. These run for up to half an hour in the preschool room during our free play session. The sessions have a more formal structure, and concentrate on preparing children for school. You will be informed before your child’s first session.

We enjoy a continuing close liaison with local primary schools, including amongst others Breamore, Downton, Hale and Fordingbridge. During the summer term arrangements are made for the children to visit their respective school for a couple of sessions, the reception teacher is also invited to spend time with us at preschool to meet with the child and parent in a familiar setting.

Please contact a staff member if you have any queries or concerns regarding your child and starting school as our aim is to ensure this transition goes smoothly and with confidence for both child and parent
