Pre-School 3-5 Years

From 3 years to 4 years…
Our Super Stars


Our spacious room for the younger pre-school children, together with their own outdoor play area, is designed to allow children to move around freely to access all areas of provision, allowing children to develop their own interests, unique personalities, self-confidence and learning skills.


Every day is an adventure for children at Giant Leap as they explore a varied timetable and learn new skills. Through their everyday activities, children are taught the value of friendship, honesty, fairness and respect for others with our team promoting diversity and equal opportunities through a variety of celebrations and festivals.


From 4 years to 5 years…
Shining Stars


Alongside our fabulous forest grounds is our outdoor classroom and pre-school unit for the older 4 to 5 year old pre-school children. We enjoy learning through a variety of structured activities and purposeful play that prepares us for school. In addition to offering a curriculum that covers communication, literacy, numeracy, exploration and science together with music, sport and IT, we also base our learning on the principles of the Forest School ethos: allowing children to develop an enduring love and understanding of the natural environment, whilst at the same time developing self-esteem, confidence and social skills.


Our Parents can be confident that a Giant Leap start in life makes moving on to school an easy transition.
