3 - 4 years
As children progress to a stage more developed than toddlerhood, but not quite Pre-School age, our aim is to introduce a structure and pace to our classes. Our Mini Pumpkins room is the beginning of their educational journey so we introduce a style of teaching that will be developed as they progress through their final years with Little Pumpkins Nursery and then on to Primary School.
Our learning methods at this stage are more structured and purposeful than in previous years, where children are taught the importance of learning and encouraged to approach every scenario with curiosity in order to develop a positive disposition to learning. During these classes we will teach the children to be confident and believe that they have the skills they require to succeed.
By the time they progress from the Mini Pumpkins room, they will have the confidence to think for themselves and apply their knowledge to communicate and solve problems. Finally, they will understand how to work successfully with others, communicating effectively to solve problems.
