Preschool 2023 - 2024

Welcome to Preschool!

We are delighted to have joined the Stapeley Broad Lane Team and have the opportunity to open up a new Preschool. We have been up and running since January 2023. Our setting is in a mobile classroom, within the school grounds and we have created an inviting and exciting indoor learning space for Preschool aged children. Our teaching and learning environment offers a wide range of stimulating activities and resources, which promote each child’s learning across all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. We are utilising the main school hall space and school grounds while plans are put in place to create an outdoor learning space. 

Our Preschool hours are 8.45-11.45am for a morning session and 12.15-3.15pm for an afternoon session, Term Time Only.

Children can stay all day and either bring their own lunchbox or enjoy a school dinner. They have their lunch in the school hall. 

"Wrap-around care" is offered by our before and after-school club. You can use your FEEE funding to cover extended school days. 

Preschool children are able to attend Holiday Club, we can hold pre-agreed places for children over school holidays to enable them to join for a full year. These additional holiday days are not covered by FEEE funding. 

We have had a fantastic first 2 terms with our Preschool children and they are ready and very excited to start Reception in September. 

A few bits of praise from our parents!

For parents and children, for September 2023, our Meet the Teachers Evening is Wednesday 20th September at 3.45! If you are able to join us, please come to the setting to see our outdoor area and the learning environment. 

We have spaces for Preschool aged children to join us now and are able to discuss places for children joining us the day after their 3rd Birthday. It's a great opportunity for your child to have a smooth transition to Reception; building friendships, getting to know school routines and expectations as well as staff and their new school. 

We are have spaces for children to start from September 2023.
