Rising 5s Room is an extension of the main Pre-school, the same opportunities are provided, however our main focus is school readiness and supporting the children to be emotionally and physically ready for the new opportunities they will encounter at school.
We work with the local schools to ensure each child is confident to achieve their goals in a school environment, we support their learning in many areas such as self care for example self dressing and expressing their needs for toileting and eating and drinking. All of these skills we develop through play and daily routine.
The children have daily opportunities to practise their pre writing and hand writing skills, maths including counting, problem solving, turn taking and reasoning skills.
Scallywags Rising 5s will also be taking part in outings and visiting the local community. Our qualified, enthusiastic staff will further encourage their thoughts and communication to extend on their learning with in all areas of the early years curriculum.
OFSTED child ratios for over 3’s are one staff member per 8 children, and we will always be in accordance with this.
