Pre School

Cotton End Pre-School class is called Hedgehogs.

Our objectives are to deliver the curriculum by means of developmentally appropriate play activities with adult scaffolding children as recommended in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework.

We provide a stimulating, exciting and safe environment for all children, where we aim to support a child’s personal development and prepare them for the future. We encourage children to take ownership over their own learning and development by working alongside the children’s individual interests and needs. We take pride in the fact that we are a small village pre-school where staff know each child’s needs well and can support their learning in the positive environment.

We like to use the local environment for many activities such as mini beast hunts, walks, and picnics. While the field outside the local church is used for large group activities such as races, sports day and obstacle courses.

We accept children from the term following their 3rd birthday with full time sessions available if required. 15 hours are funded and any extra hours need to be booked with staff and paid for separately.

We accept children that are entitled to 30 hours funding, please speak to Mrs Lee if you are entitled to this and we will try to accomodate, as spaces are limited.

We NOW take children from 2 years and 9 months, these sessions are free if you are entitled to funding or can be paid for.

Morning session: 9.00am – 12.00pm

Afternoon session: 12.30pm -3.30pm

Lunch club: 12pm -12.30pm

Sessions can either be taken as full or part days, we will try to accommodate each families individual needs. Please don’t hesitate to come and look around at what our wonderful, friendly Pre-School has to offer.

Our Team:

Pre-School Leader – Mrs Lee

Deputy Pre-School Leader – Mrs Miah Noor

Pre-School Assistants – Mrs Koprowska, Miss Templeton and Miss Coe

Children have been thoroughly enjoying this terms Topic, tasking foods form different food groups.
