Our preschool room continues to support the children to cement the skills they have developed in the earlier stages of their Little Stars journey, and combines these with new skills in preparation for their transition into school. There is a strong focus on developing independence throughout the nursery, particularly in the preschool room. We are able to instil an awareness of literacy and mathematics within our preschool children, by embedding meaningful resources into our environment to be freely explored, whilst maintaining our child-led approach. We have developed excellent links with Waterbeach Community Primary School, which enable us to equip the children with the skills they need to thrive in the school environment and fully support their transition into school. For each cohort of children, we ensure that we visit the primary school site, have interactions with teachers and encourage discussion about the children’s ideas and feelings about their upcoming transition.
