About Our Devizes Pre-School: Rising Stars 3-5 year olds
Welcome to our Rising Stars room.
Rising Stars is our largest room, which allows bigger class sizes and operates with 4 qualified adults. Your child will join the Rising Stars when they are in their last year before starting school, and this last phase in the nursery is a gentle introduction to school readiness.
The room is made up, similarly to the Little Stars (younger pre-school) room, with a vinyl floor area to allow for messy play alongside a large carpeted area. The children have access to the full range of resources and curriculum opportunities across the room at all times. We encourage the children to make choices about their play and learning, independently accessing activities of their own choosing, while being supported and their ideas extended by our Pre-School team.
We have a more structured day in the Rising Stars room, with a little more time spent in small group sessions, early phonics and circle times in preparation for reception year at school.
Our 2 Pre-School groups join together everyday for outdoor play and learning, as well as for the later part of each day when they enjoy afternoon play and tea together (from around 3pm).
We follow the same learning and development planning from babies through to school leavers. With an individualised learning plan based heavily around child interests, parental input, and great attention to learning and development needs, we endeavour to ensure that every child in our care reaches their individual potential.
