Partnership with the School

Being on the school site has enabled Little Explorers to develop strong links especially between the pre-school and reception class, which helps support both children, parents, key practitioners and teachers. Experiencing a happy and positive introduction into school life with what is hoped to be seamless transition.

We have weekly visits into reception class to join in with play activities, song and story time, this has proved to be a valuable way of enabling our children to become familiar with the school, the classroom environment, daily routines and the teaching team working within the school foundation stage.

Our rising four sessions towards the end of the summer term offer more opportunities for both children and parents to become more familiar with the reception class for two mornings, before a whole school move up day, where the children will have lunch in the school hall. 

Our foundation stage and reception class regularly join together for special events throughout the year such as sports days, school fun days, Easter events, bring a parent to breakfast, Chinese new year, Diwali, Teddy bears picnic and much more, which enables the pre-school to offer a ongoing carousel of events throughout your child’s time in our pre-school.
