Barn Owls (3 Years 3 Months to School Age – Pre-school)

Welcome to Barn Owls

Barn Owls is for 3-5 year olds. In this room, parents can still use their free 15/30 hours entitlement from the Government but we are open for the longer nursery hours. In Barn Owls we follow the ratio of 1:8. All staff are friendly and easy to approach.

In Barn Owls we support the children to become confident, independent learners and prepare them for going to school. We use lots of praise and encouragement to support the children with dressing themselves, self-serving their own food and drinks and using the bathroom.

We believe children learn through play. We use the EYFS, observing the children, planning for their individual needs and enabling them to be prepared for their future. We enjoy messy play, music and movement, story time, arts and crafts and Key-Person time.

We have a poem that we like to sing to encourage all the children (and staff!) to be kind and considerate to each other.

The Barn Owls Poem

We are kind from our head to our toes,

We have kind hands and kind words,

Our feet are for walking,

Our ears are for listening,

We share our toys and always take turns.
