Ages 2 to 4 years.
The Early Years Unit of Friesner Education is situated within the school building. Our proximity to Heaton Park allows us to provide the children with a range of outdoor experiences, playing with small PE equipment, nature walks, visiting the farm, all of which enhance our tried and tested curriculum.
Our fenced garden area allows us to experience and enjoy outdoor play on a regular basis with access to a variety of small play equipment as well as resources that compliment and deliver areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage. We encourage children to come well prepared with wellingtons and coats as well as sun cream and hats so we may take them out as much as possible.
A two course midday meal is provided, prepared on the premises by staff with Food Hygiene Certificates. Fresh fruit and vegetables are available daily. Special dietary requirements can be catered for. We also provide a morning and afternoon snack for the children.
Early Years Unit 2-3 Years
Prestwich Prep Nursery offer a warm welcome in a safe, secure environment in which children grow to become confident able students. Our qualified and experienced staff are available daily to discuss your child’s progress, needs and daily activities. For more detailed discussion we invite parents to make an appointment at a mutually convenient time.
The play area allows the children to move around freely, independently selecting toys to play with as well as participating in focussed activities with staff members. Staff plan activities which will enhance your child’s development and give them opportunities for new experiences and enjoyment. The activities fulfil the criteria set out in the Early Years Foundation Curriculum and a daily diary enables you to keep abreast of your child’s day and make comments if you wish to do so.
On enrolment we ask for your child’s routine, likes and dislikes so we are able to incorporate this into their nursery day as far as possible. We like the children to go outside daily and ask that you provide suitable outdoor clothing.
Nursery is term time only, however holiday care and after school club is available which must be booked in advance. We close for two weeks at Christmas and Bank Holidays. Places are subject to change throughout the year whether or not the child attends nursery. One month’s notice is required to terminate a place.
Foundation Stage 3-4 Years
Following their third birthday, children make the transition into the Prep School pre-school. The pre-school classroom prepares children for reception with a wide range of activities and methods being employed to promote areas of learning within the Foundation Curriculum.
In practice we work with small groups of children to encourage them to develop the fundamental skills of spoken a written communication, reading and number. The child’s verbal and physical skills are developed together with the acquisition of factual information and social awareness.
The school is recognised by OFSTED as a provider of education at the Foundation Level for the purposes of eligibility for government nursery funding. We accept government tax free and employment childcare vouchers.
