Pre-School Room

The Pre-School Room takes children from the age of three until they start school.  Currently in the UK this is the September after their fourth birthday.  We ensure children are well rounded, stable, happy individuals when they leave Westwood Nursery to start school with the skills needed to meet the challenges of school life.

There are places for 18 children, with a staff ratio of 1:8.  The Room Leader works closely with her highly skilled team of Early Years Educators and Forest School Practitioners to ensure children learn:

  • Independance
  • Social interaction
  • Making choices
  • Problem solving

The day is structured similar to a reception class within a school with adult led activites, opportunities for independant learning and social group interactions.  Outdoor play is considered an important part of the learning schedule and is part of the every day routine.  This includes regular trips to the Forest School where learning from the environment extends the Early years Foundation Stage further.
