Wise Owls

32/36 months through to 5 years

In this age group we gently introduce a little more structure into each session in preparation for BIG school, although the emphasis is still on learning through active play, exploration and creative thinking.

Your child will have opportunities to learn and develop their skills by using a large range of materials such as role play, programmable technology and wood work. They will take part in art and craft activities, building with toys and exploring malleable materials. They will also enjoy dance, singing, musical instruments and will discover how things work and grow.

In the Wise Owls your child will be encouraged to develop a love of books, they will take home a weekly book to share with you, to turn the pages and tell their own story through pictures and even recognise some familiar letters or words.

We develop their number skills, counting, matching and recognising numbers with a variety of games and activities. Our unique approach to early learning combines the very best aspects of both teaching and care.

Your child will soon develop a strong sense of achievement through learning and playing in a relaxed, rewarding, enabling environment of the highest quality.
