By your third year you’re starting to understand the value of finding friends to have fun with. The Preschool offers a communication rich environment to help you do this. There are lots of opportunities for children to develop social skills and team work through everyday play. From waiting your turn with the help of the sand timer to building dens with logs twice as tall as you are.

Three year olds also have a growing desire to be independent and we encourage and support this. Each practitioners key children form a team and children are rewarded with a ball in their teams jar when they achieve something for themselves or just do something amazing. Having a visual target in mind really helps children to develop their independence.

It’s also a time when you are developing your own interests and practitioners tailor activities to cater for each child’s unique passions.
