Kirsty Olive - Room Manager

Welcome To Pre School

Sleaford Day Nursery Pre School is a vibrant and busy room to which we can take up to 38 children at any one time. 

The areas within the room are clearly identifiable and areas meet the interests of the children and our focus planning. We offer a variety of activities throughout the day, this includes child led and adult led activities. Adult led activities help your child to be involved in higher risk activities, enables your child to learn new skills and concepts and will support language development. With child directed play, your child leads and the adult follows; this builds a sense of self-direction and self confidence in your child and will foster language development as well as strengthening relationships and bonds. 

The key aim of our Pre-School is to learn through play and to get the children ready for school. As we all know, our children are all unique and all learn in different ways. It is the enhancement of the room and the dedicated staff who will help your children to blossom and thrive. 

Throughout your child’s time at Pre-School you will be offered two parents evenings per year, a singing showcase at Easter, a leavers disco and a graduation for us all to say goodbye and share the growth of our children in July.

We have five key groups each led by qualified staff members giving each child the security of a special person within the room.
