SESSIONS


We are open 9am-12 noon Tuesday to Friday and 1pm - 3pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We also run a lunch club from 12 - 1pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. You are able to choose sessions to suit you and your child. Ask our Pre-school leader about availability.

Routines and Organisation of Sessions

We believe that care and education are equally important in the experience which we offer children. The routines and activities that make up the Pre-school session are provided in ways that:

  • Help each child to feel that he/she is a valued member of the group.

  • Ensure the safety of each child.

  • Help children to gain from the social experience of being part of a group.

  • Provide children with opportunities to learn and help them value learning.


  • We organise our sessions so that the children can choose from, and work at, a range of activities and, in doing so, build up their ability to select and work through a task to its completion. The children are also helped and encouraged to take part in adult-led small and large group activities, which introduce them to new experiences and help them to gain new skills, as well as helping them to learn to work with others.

    Outdoor activities contribute to children's health, their physical development and their knowledge of the world around them. With our great outdoor resources and soon to be opened 'Forest School', children have the opportunity, and are actively encouraged, to take part in outdoor child-chosen and adult-led activities, as well as those provided in the indoor playroom.

    BABY AND TODDLER GROUP


    On Monday mornings, Christow Babies and Toddler Group is hosted at the pre-school. This informal and friendly session provides a stimulating environment for little ones and as well as an opportunity for parents/carers to chat and meet other like-minded individuals. Each week we have a craft or messy play activity followed by singing. Coffee and tea is provided for grown-ups and a snack for little ones.

    The welcoming group meets term-times on Monday morning 10am to 11:30am. This is a great opportunity for children to get used to the pre-school setting before they are old enough to attend.

    Charges are £2.50 for first sibling (over 1 year old) with each further sibling 50p. Babies under one are £1 and the first session is free.

    For more information please call Nicola Solly on 01647 252102.
