We call ourselves a Pre-School because we are more than simply child care. We offer a structured yet immersive Early Years educational experience. Young children thrive as they take ownership of their own learning, supported by the routines of the day. This fully prepares them for Reception and the start of their prep school life. Every child learns, no matter their starting point, and our staff to pupil ratios ensure that every child flourishes as our bespoke approach begins here.
Our youngest Granville pupils begin their school life in the Red Room, where they can join in the term that they turn 3. Here they enjoy a warm welcome into our happy, safe and stimulating environment. Each child quickly settles and builds strong relationships with staff and new friends.
Once children are established, confident and settled, they will move across to the ‘Yellow Room’. Here their proficiency in all spheres of learning is further developed, building the solid foundation they need to move to the next stage of their educational journey. After their time in Yellow Room, the boys move on to their next stage schools, supported and guided by our expertise. Currently our boys take up places at The New Beacon, Solefields, Sevenoaks Prep and local state primary schools while our girls move into Reception at The Granville.
Our qualified, experienced and specialist staff provide a caring, well organised and stimulating atmosphere where children’s natural curiosity is nurtured and the foundations of learning are built.
Our Pre-School is the perfect setting for children to develop their independence, their imagination, creativity and individual interests. The happiness and well-being of our girls and boys is catered for through a rich variety of play and learning activities in an inspiring and exciting environment. We use a thematic approach linked to the interests and development of the children, which translates into a broad, stimulating timetable covering everything from first hand experiences such as hatching our own chicks and collecting eggs from our chickens to phonics and numeracy and the excitement surrounding early reading. We place great focus on awareness and exploration of the environment and the natural world, ensuring our children become ‘environmental scientists’ and support this with regular trips aligned to their learning, such as visits to Godstone Farm and Bluebell Woods.
Learning is not limited to the classroom but extends to the whole school site, which is theirs to explore. They also benefit from the expertise of specialist teachers for Music, PE, Forest School, Ballet, French, Yoga, Swimming and Computing, .
There is simply no limit to the amount of learning and fun offered at The Granville Pre-School.
