Our pre-school cares for children aged between 3 and 4 years old and is split into three separate rooms, the Ladybirds, Kingfishers and Dragonflies. Where possible, we try to ensure that each room is made up of children who will begin primary school in the same school year. 

As with the rest of the nursery, the Ladybird and Kingfisher Rooms are open through the year from 8am - 6pm. For parents interested in term-time only places from 8.45am - 2.45pm, we also offer spaces in our Dragonflies Room.

Promoting independence and growth
At this age, your child is encouraged to show a sense of pride in their achievements and learn to positively resolve their differences with others. 

Your child will have a dedicated key person, who will track their progress so that activities and planned with their developmental needs in mind. The key person will work with you to set next steps to help your child reach their full potential.

Stimulating activities
To encourage independence and free choice, your child will enjoy free flow play where possible and can access all equipment and toys throughout the day, under the supervision of our qualified and experienced team.

We provide an excellent variety of stimulating activities, experimenting with many different textures, shapes and colours. In the Ladybird and Kingfisher Rooms, our child can can choose whether they want to play inside or outside throughout the day, with the option to take advantage of a large range of outdoor activities. Children in the Dragonflies Room enjoy multiple chances to play outside throughout the day.

Preparing for school
Our children feed into a range of primary schools in Peterborough and we work with them as your child prepares to move. Your child's new teacher will visit the nursery and meet with your child's key person to discuss their individual needs, development and progress.

We work closely with the Council, schools and parents to ensure a seamless transition. Our staff are on hand to discuss any concerns that parents might have before their child moves.
