A typical day at Crosspool Community Pre-school



A daily routine gives children a sense of security. This is why we ensure each day is properly structured while leaving enough time for spontaneous activities.

Small Group Time


We do lots of activities to develop the three prime areas of learning these are Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development.


Rolling Snack


We have a range of healthy snacks such as fruit and vegetables with breadsticks and crackers, with water and milk to drink.  We always have water available for the children throughout the day and they can bring in their own water bottle if they wish.



Class Group Time


We sing songs listen to a story and share home to Pre-school books.




The children bring in a healthy packed lunch from home and eat this inside the classroom.
