Kingsfield Pre-School and Extended School Prospectus

Our Vision:

Shaping futures: Inspiring and enabling all, to realise their dreams.

We are a 56 placed pre-school which is in the grounds of Kingsfield Primary School in Chatteris.  We have a purpose built building, and take children from 2 years 9 months, free two year old funding subject to eligibility and offers funded places for children aged 3-4 years old from the term after they are 3 years old.  The building is split into two rooms; Acorn Room for children from 2 years and Oak Room for children in their last year before school.  We have a fantastic outdoor area with a variety of available activities, which is accessed by both rooms throughout the pre-school day, as well as activities that are provided inside to stimulate and promote learning and play for the children.

The activities that we provide are based on the children interests, which work alongside the Early Years Foundation Stage.  This is the curriculum which is followed from birth right up until the end of Reception.

Each child will be allocated a key person who will be your main point of contact to discuss your child's development with.  The key person will be taking observations using our brand new Interactive Learning Diaries on a regular basis, which you can access at our termly key meetings!

We offer lots of opportunities for parents to become involved, including stay and play sessions, key meetings, communication books and helping us add things to our reward boards!
