Within Pre-School we begin to introduce school readiness and promote independence. During meal times we have self-service, and in a morning, we have self-registration.

Throughout the day your child will have access to a variety of adult led activities, in conjunction with free choice play, where they can choose what they wish to do/play with.

Pre-School has a fantastic free flow outside area which they can access throughout the day whenever they choose.

Each child will have a Key Person who will individually plan activities and next steps for them.

Sensory Room

To complement our Baby, Toddler and Pre-School rooms, Incredible Kids also offer a self-contained Sensory Room.

The stimulating, soothing, colourful yet tranquil surroundings of our Sensory Room which is dedicated to children of all ages (even our staff love it) allows rich and varied experiences enabling the exploration of textures, lights and sounds using their senses (sight, smell, sound & touch).

Sensory play provides enormous benefits for children; such benefits include:

  • Safe, secure & calming environment allowing children to relax and let their exploratory minds evolve
  • Encourage Social and language skills
  • Encourages Social interaction and awareness of others
  • Stimulates children’s brains leading to vast learning opportunities
  • Promote the learning of new skills
