Welcome to Orchard PreSchool

Teaching at Orchard PreSchool

At Orchard Pre-school, based in Dibden Purlieu, Hampshire, we aim to provide a stimulating and safe environment for the children supporting the development of their self-confidence and self-esteem.

We aim to encourage children’s social skills and give assurance, encouragement and appropriate praise. We introduce children to new experiences and concepts which can be built on throughout their lives.

Staff are suitably qualified to provide individual learning experiences for all the children. Learning experiences are structured, balanced, relevant to the child and related to the real world.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum which sets the standards for learning and development for children from birth to five.

We aim to provide equal learning and development opportunities for all the children in the setting. Our curriculum takes account of and responds to the children’s developmental needs and allows them to make good progress related to their differing abilities.

At Orchard Pre-School children start at 2years 9months.

We are open term time only; Monday to Friday for 3 hour sessions.

We offer EYE Funding.

We assist children’s transitions within the setting and transition to school. Most of all we aim to support children’s learning through PLAY.
