Our Tigers room is our smaller pre-school room, for children from the ages of 30 months until school age. We work closely with the Lions pre-school room.
The ratio in Tigers varies due to the age range of the children attending, for the children under 3 years the ratio is 1 adult to 4 children, and for over 3 years the ration is 1 adult to 8 children.
We encourage the children to find things out for themselves by exploring the world around them and through free play. We provide the children with daily focused activities that help develop children in all areas of their learning and prepares them to increase their independence ready for when they move onto the next stage of their education and start primary school.
We enjoy daily story sessions and song time which will also help to develop their social skills. We have a mini library in our room which the children have constant access to.
We encourage the children to take part in daily PE sessions to help develop their gross motor skills and learn to take turns and be part of a team.
There is a quiet area within the room should the children just want to sit and rest and enjoy a lovely book or some chill out time.
We take the children on regular outings within the local area, this includes the local park, the cricket club or even a trip to the local shop. We regularly go over to the garden so the children can enjoy time outside.
We work closely with parents/carers and are available to discuss any questions that may arise.
