preschool-1Pre School

The pre school is designed to provide your child with maximum care and comfort. The preschool is equipped with the latest technological enhancements in order to provide an environment that is not only physically stimulating, but also one that encourages creative development too. Resources, activities and play opportunities are designed individually in order to make sure that your child is capable of putting his abilities to the best possible use.

Early Year’s Foundation Stage Curriculum

We have a strong belief that children only learn through playing and mental stimulation, and that is why we have created a wide spectrum of different activities both indoors and outdoors that are aimed at maximizing your children’s input.

Every child will be put through a play based curriculum that will aim to bring out the best in them. The curriculum is designed to improve their skills, both mental and physical and develop them in the following areas:

Personal, social and emotional development

Allows children to create relationships with others, and make friends. Also allows them to manage relationships in groups. Their environment is designed in such a way that it helps them in learning these values.

preschool-2Communication and language

Children are encouraged and supported to develop confidence to be able to express themselves, using a wide range of communication skills for example; babbling, few simple worlds and forming more complex sentences. This is an essential key of every child learning, enabling them to build positive relationships with others and make sense of the world around them.

To encourage children to take an interest in a wide range of books, both listening and exploring books independently. To support children to develop confident and take a positive interest in writing skills, using a wide range of activities and utensils.


We provide a range of different practical scenarios for the children in order to help them in developing an understanding of mathematics. Children are put through a range of different experiences while help them in laying down the foundations of basic science, design, information and communication technology, history as well as geography.

Knowledge and understanding of the world

We encourage the asking of children, as we understand that they are curious learners. We encourage them to experiment, and get an understanding of the laws of the world that we live in. We help them in understanding the importance of history, geography, as well as provide them with basic religious education.

Physical development

We help and support children in developing themselves physically, teaching them how to handle different kinds of equipment as well as teaching them how to handle themselves accordingly.

Creative Development

At Caterpillars Day Nursery Carshalton, we encourage children to participate in numerous different activities. As a child’s imagination opens up, they are able to express their ideas in a much better fashion, and this encourages creative development in them. They are able to use the mediums of art, music and role play in order to bring their ideas out. This is what we put to use in order to develop a child’s creative understanding and ensure maximum mental stimulation.

We understand that meticulous planning is needed to make sure that a child develops as well as possible. That is why we assign a ‘Key Person’ to your child in order to make sure that your child is always engaged in healthy activities, and that he/ she understands what they are doing.

All observations about children are linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. This allows us to monitor every child’s individual development and also allows us to record their learning in the Individual Learning Journal. Basically, this is a compilation of all your child’s interests, achievements, as well as developments throughout the time that he has been with the Caterpillars Day Nursery Carshalton.
