Your child will embark on their Preschool journey with us at around three years old, enjoying an enriching, learning environment, that fully supports their individual needs through individual play and group activities.

We are passionate about taking care of your Preschool children

Within our Preschool room, there are some guided areas, such as a construction area, home corner, book area, and creative spaces for music and art. To complement these, we provide a range of areas and activities which serve different purposes to inspire your child’s imagination and role play, they’ll be able to safely explore feelings and friendships, develop problem-solving, and have space available where they can have quiet time and reflection.

Their time in the preschool environment leads them towards starting their school journey, where their first year at school sees them complete their Early Years Foundation Stage journey that began at our nursery.

“My son currently attends this nursery.. after visiting lots of other nurseries in Stafford Monkey Puzzle stood out above the rest due to the enthusiasm from all the staff. The resources and educational activities available for the children are outstanding.”

Preschool Environment

Our preschool room is divided into different areas, offering play opportunities that promote all seven areas of learning, within the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ framework.

  • communication and language
  • physical development
  • personal social and emotional development
  • literacy
  • mathematics
  • understanding of the world
  • expressive arts and design

The children in our preschool benefit from phonics and numeracy sessions delivered by highly, experienced qualified staff. Engaging activities based on your child’s interests will provide practitioners with evidence to observe your child and track their development. Activities will take place both inside and outside. In preschool, we will be preparing your child for the all-important move to primary school and will promote listening activities, sharing and extending concentration for short amounts of time. We will work closely with your choice of primary school to aid the transition process and invite the school to meet your child in our nursery, to see them in a comfortable environment and share their development so far.
