Welcome

A very warm welcome to The Priors Preschool

 

The Priors Preschool was formed as part of our transition into a Free School in 2011. It was initially run by Priors Education Trust as a charity based nursery, with the school taking on the running of it from September 2021. We decided to change the name from The Priors School Nursery to The Priors Preschool to better describe our offer to families from September 2023. Our aim is to provide your child with an enjoyable, stimulating, and educational time and to teach them a variety of skills and social graces to help them follow on to their next big adventure – school!

 

Our setting consists of different activities each day, and we have a wide and varied program over the week.  The topics are changed each term.  Each day will be different if your child attends five or two sessions per week.  We work to achieve the current Early Learning Goals as set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance as well as within the Every Child Matters framework.  We are subject to regular Ofsted inspections when they visit the school, and the last full inspection was November 2019.

 

Our aims for your child

Our aims are:

  • To provide each child with a warm and loving environment where they feel a sense of belonging and can learn to be strong and independent.
  • To provide a sound beginning to school life from the age of two years.  Your child will be encouraged to start looking at numbers, colours, shapes and the world about us in a variety of ways.
  • To provide a stimulating environment within which your child will learn how to use a pencil, look at a book and use lots of different textures and materials, will begin to experience craft, art, cookery and music.
  • To provide each child with a warm and loving environment where they feel a sense of belonging and can learn to be strong and independent.
  • To ensure that no child will be disadvantaged or excluded.

 

We will offer your child:

  • The specially tailored curriculum leads to approved Early Learning Goals.
  • Individual care and attention are made possible by a high ratio of adults to children.
  • Fun and friendships with children and adults.

Opportunities for you and your family to be involved in group activities and your child’s own progress.

 

We currently have vacancies in our Preschool and are accepting applications.

 

Free 15 hour, and a limited number of 30 hour places, are offered in our Preschool for 3 -4 year olds along with the option to purchase additional hours and wrap around breakfast and after school clubs to enable access for working parents/carers.
