Joining Preschool is an exciting moment in a child’s learning, preparing them for the journey onto school. Our Preschool room is set up with a huge role play area to enhance opportunities for the wealth of imaginative play that this age engage in. There are life skills shelves with activity trays on for the children to select and explore independently to develop fine motor skills in preparation for learning to write at school. There are also lots of creative media set up for the children to select that allows them to develop independence and provides opportunity for their own creative ideas to flourish. All mark making experiences are important steps in developing strength in their fine motor skills and control to assist learning to form letters as they reach school age.
