Little Foresters Pre-School 

Our pre-school is open through term time and is open to children the term before their third birthday. Morning sessions run from 9 -12 and afternoon sessions from 12 - 3. Our current prices are £12 per session or you can use your 15 or 30 hours funding which is available to children from the term after they are three. 

Our pre-school is part of our reception and year 1 class, so pupils get the chance to interact with a range of peers. Our classroom offers children a range of learning opportunities and we have a garden and forest area to explore. 


We love being outside in the garden and exploring the mud kitchen; making mud pies and lots of potions. We also like investigating our surroundings and finding mini beasts. 

Outdoor area 

In this area we enjoy messy play. We play with water, sand and get to paint. This term we have had a car wash and have been using our weather station. 


Inside we have a range of areas including: role play, creative, construction, small world, maths, mark making and reading. We love exploring our environment using our senses. 

Forest school 

We love putting our wellies on and getting outside. 

We have opportunities through the week to explore our unique forests school area. We learn how to care for the animals, plants and environment around us. 

We learn how to keep ourselves safe including climbing, fires and tools.


We assess the children using an online programme called Tapestry.  This allows parents/carers to view their child's learning journey through pre-school.
