Cygnet preschool is a vibrant and welcoming setting, situated on the grounds of a local secondary school. Cygnet preschool offers care for children between 2-4 years of age. From January 1st 2020 we have become members of Greenfylde First School.
Daily life in preschool:
At Cygnet preschool we strive to offer the best start for children’s early education. We work closely in partnership with parents and carers to ensure an open and honest relationship, which keeps the child at the heart of our practices. We follow the early years foundation stage curriculum to support children’s learning and ensure an effective key worker system.
We open for term time sessions between 9am and 3pm.
Morning session – 9.00am – 11.30am
Lunch hour – 11.30am – 12.30pm
Afternoon session – 12.30pm – 3.00pm
All day session – 9.00am – 3.00pm
We offer a learning rich environment to ensure every child has the opportunity to explore freely and access a wide range of resources to help them thrive and aid their development. We also offer a free flow environment which allows access between both inside and outside spaces for play and exploration.
Our setting offers an inviting, open plan preschool room with daily access to the sheltered outside space. We also have an outside, grassed play area with a wooden climbing frame and an allotment where children are able to plant and grow a range of fruits and vegetables which are often used for our café.
During café and lunch times we encourage children to sit together to support their personal, social and emotional development as well as encouraging strong relationship bonds between children and staff.
