Reception, our preschool school programme for 2.5 & 3 year olds
The Pre primary Curriculum for our youngest SNS students is hands-on, fun and exciting.
The children are given opportunities to think, speak and listen in a range of situations, to develop their communication and language skills, as well as their confidence in expressing their thoughts and ideas.
The physical learning environment, both indoor and outdoor, provides the children with stimulating and challenging learning opportunities to develop their co-ordination and control and they are encouraged to work with equipment to develop both their gross motor and fine motor skills. Children are supported to develop a positive sense of their own self and their abilities, build positive relationships with each other and develop care and respect for others.
Our rich and broad programme, in which our youngest students are provided with a variety of learning opportunities that are suited for their stage of development, ensures they have a positive start to their learning journey with us.
The wonderful world of stories, nursery rhymes, songs, role-play and drama within a language rich learning environment, stimulates the children's curiosity and helps their learning of phonics and the development of fundamental early reading and writing skills.
