Tall Oaks

Tall Oaks 3-4 Years

We understand that each child is ready for the move to Pre-School in their own time. Your child’s key person will discuss your child’s readiness with you nearer the time. Being three is so grown up and we do not underestimate the pressures these our children may feel as they are prepared for school life. It is our mission, passion and belief that this special year should be celebrating the knowledge and skills children have learned already and teaching them to use them in new ways. We can now hold paint brushes, play with shakers, build towers, construct roads, dig tunnels, but now we begin to think about what, why, when and how. The children are challenged to think critically about their own play and discoveries and given the support to make decisions, and make things happen in their own way.

We are pleased to be able to offer all families the Governments Early Years Funding Entitlement of 15 hours of FREE childcare for all 3 year olds. This funding can be accessed for 38 weeks of the year from the school term after your child’s 3rd birthday.

Your child will have their own peg. Please leave a nursery bag with:

*Spare underwear

*Two sets of spare clothes

When the weather is warm – named sun hat and sun lotion

When the weather is cold – warm coat, hat and gloves.
