Pre-school at The Laurels Nursery School
Pre-school is an important milestone for our 3 to 5 year olds. At The Laurels Nursery School Queniborough our emphasis is on preparing our older children for school.
We incorporate the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) into our daily activities and introduce our children to literacy and numeracy, whilst also encouraging them to be confident and independent investigators and explorers.
The pre-school room is divided into well-defined learning areas, each equipped with resources that focus on a particular area of learning. These include emergent writing, mathematics, reading, information technology, role play, construction and many other activities.
In addition, specialist and qualified teachers provide French, yoga and music & movement classes for our over 3 year olds.
Pre-school development for 3 to 5 year olds
Improving social development, communication and interaction skills are a priority for our pre-school children and we regularly ensure the children engage in organised activities that are specifically designed to encourage:
- Physical skills both gross & fine
- Communication and teamwork
- Imaginative and creative play
- Talking and negotiation
- Knowledge of their own abilities
- Children to manage their own risk
- Knowledge and appreciation of nature
The Laurels Nursery School is an OFSTED registered preschool in Queniborough, Leicestershire
Both my children went to The Laurels Nursery School. My youngest daughter left in August to start school. I have been impressed overall by the care both my children have had. The staff are always so caring and ready to listen.
