Miss Green, our Pre-school Manager, along with Pre-school assistants Mrs Robinson and Miss Cosnett welcome all new children and aim to give them the very best start in life. 

Fladbury Pre-school accepts children from 2 years 9 months old, and we are open during school term time, following the school calendar.

Daily Routines and Activities
At Fladbury Pre-school, we follow a simple routine to offer your child consistency. However, this routine is flexible to change with your children as we progress through the academic year. If your child struggles to settle, we encourage a series of shorter introductory sessions. 

We offer a variety of child-led activities which are based around Development Matters. We make use of the school playground, outside play equipment, quiet garden, forest school and other school facilities.  Any adult-led focused activities will be planned around your child’s interests and needs and include phonics, P.E., cookery, music, forest school and lots more!

Working Together
Here at Fladbury Pre-school we are lucky that we are already part of Fladbury First School. Our classroom is known as Maple Class, and we are joined by our Reception Children in the same room.  We often join Reception Class children for activities on a regular basis, including day trips, and we also visit whole school worship and church services throughout the year. 

We also run sessions in the Summer term as a ‘Reception Taster’ which introduces children to their classmates and Teachers and supports their transition into 'big school'. These are introduced through play-based activities which will help to make the transition into school much easier.

Session Information
Our core opening times are from 8:50am to 3:20pm. We offer flexibility within these times; morning sessions are from 8:50am - 11:50am and afternoon sessions are from 12:30pm - 3:20pm. There is also a morning session with lunch option available from 8:50am - 1:00pm or an afternoon session with lunch option from 11:50am to 3:20pm.

If you wish your child to attend more than their funded hours, you can top this up at an additional cost per hour during the Pre-school day, or using our wraparound care.
