Pre-school

Our pre-school classes are commissioned by The Highland Council to provide free pre-school education for children aged 3 and 4.

We have a maximum capacity of 29 children per session. Our pre-school classes follow the Curriculum for Excellence framework which is implemented within all aspects of the pre-school including individual planning for children, key worker system and working in partnership with parents.

Two classes run daily from 8.50am to 12:00pm and 12.50 to 4.00pm during term time.

Each session is full of well-planned activities to ensure every child can reach his/her full potential. The children are encouraged to be independent and learn to have respect for each other and their surroundings. They participate in activities which promote early literacy and language development. Lots of the sessions focus on early maths and science. Music and dance play a large role in the curriculum and everyone enjoys letting their hair down. Physical education is a very important part of the daily routine and we make use of our wonderful garden areas. We are inspected by HMIe and the Care Commission and we have an annual self-evaluation to monitor all areas of the provision, maintaining our very high standards.

We are using the Curriculum for Excellence to support children in developing the four capacities of Successful Learners, Confident Individuals, Responsible Citizens and Effective Contributors.
