Mighty Oaks - Pre-School Room
The pre-school rooms are designed to allow our children access to a wide range of free choice activities, as well as free-flow play. There is easy access to the garden area. The garden area has a natural environment developed to encourage growing imaginations; the children particularly enjoy playing with the large sand pit, mud kitchen as well as a playground area where children can ride on tricycles to encourage gross motor development. The children enjoy a weekly language lesson and a weekly music lesson from qualified external language and dance/music teachers.
The Mighty Oaks staff team provide a supportive transition programme for all our pre-schoolers which prepares them for their move into Foundation Stage at primary school. Part of this includes a weekly Funergy session held in the hall at Malcolm Sargent Primary School. Further transition work for the children includes visits to the classrooms during the summer term, to swap books and play, watching the school plays in the school studio, and sampling lunches in the school hall.
