- Stimulating indoor and outdoor learning environment
- Small classes led by experienced and caring staff
- A tailored, interactive learning programme
Located in St John’s Prep-Prep, next to the main school, Kindergarten provides a wonderful introduction to school in a secure and stimulating environment purposefully designed for young children.
As with all of St John’s classes there is an excellent pupil to teacher ratio (an average of 12 pupils) enabling our Kindergarten teacher and classroom assistant to provide tailored learning support and to cater each child’s individual needs.
Kindergarten has a dedicated library, arts and crafts areas, role play zones and IT facilities. The open-plan classroom allows free flow to a large outdoor play and learning area.
The curriculum is carefully structured to balance learning with fun and closely follows the Reception curriculum. The children are taught by specialist teachers for Drama, Music and PE. Classroom activities are enriched with visits to our on-site Forest School and there are many performance opportunities, including Christmas and Summer productions.
Kindergarten is run by Hedgehog’s Nursery. It operates at St John’s school during term time and at Hedgehogs Nursery during the school holidays (52 weeks per year provision).
