Developing the children’s confidence and social skills is key to our mission at St Paul’s, as is making sure they enjoy their time at pre-school. The wide variety of indoor and outdoor play on offer enables them to acquire new talents and explore new interests.

Indoors

We can change the set-up of the hall (illustrated above) to allow for a wide range of activities, although it usually features a home corner, a library area, craft tables, a dressing-up cupboard, musical instruments, a “Small World” area, a construction mat and a varied selection of games, puzzles and toys and indoor PE equipment.

We have a table for maths and literacy, a computer and lots of time for singing, making music and cooking.

Outdoors

Our outside play areas include a surfaced courtyard playground that features a wooden pirate ship, a play house, a large sandpit, water play, gardening, a selection of bikes, tricycles and ride-on toys and a vast array of PE equipment.

There is also a grass meadow with plenty of space to run around, planks to build with and tyres, slides and small climbing equipment.

We have a newly developed sensory garden within the courtyard which promotes multi-sensory learning.

The children spend plenty of time outside, in all weather, and need to dress prepared for fun.
