Marden Pre-school

Our setting offers to provide a safe, happy and friendly environment with experienced staff.  Stimulating learning experiences are created through exploring and play, motivating your children to learn.  Developing linguistically, intellectually, physically and socially from play based activities, whilst working towards early learning goals.  Marden Pre-School provides affordable, high quality care where we respect the parents/carers role in a child’s development.  We work in partnership with parents during their child’s time with us.

Each child is allocated a key person when joining the Pre-school.  They help children to settle in and form positive relationships with others.  Through interaction with adults and children they will develop a wealth of early learning skills, which will enable a smooth and confident transition to primary school.  We have very strong links with Marden Primary Academy and work with them prior to transition to primary school.  For children that go on to Marden Primary, we run transition periods helping achieve familiarisation with the staff and the school building.

Children develop by being active and creative in their learning. At the setting we believe that every child is unique and our aim is to cater for every child’s individual needs and learning.

Special Educational Needs / Disabilities
