Waverley Pre-Prep (Reception - Yr 2)

         Pupils of all ages, including those in the early years,  demonstrate       enthusiasm for learning and motivation to succeed." ISI 2011

 

Your child will enter our Pre-Preparatory department after turning three and will experience a full curriculum with specialist tuition for Sports, Music, Art, ICT and Languages until they leave Pre-Prep at age 7.

Exploration is the key at this age and your child is encouraged to be creative and independent as they approach their learning. Our early years classrooms provide a modern, self contained environment where your child can explore and discover the world for themselves, interacting with open ended materials to develop creative and critical thinking. We value and respect your child's theories and allow him or her the opportunity to test their ideas. A sense of curiosity informs the direction of the learning, resulting in highly motivated effective learners with high levels of achievement through success. 

As your child moves into Years One and Two the core skills of reading, writing and acquisition of number skills are taught through structured programmes, enhanced and developed through other subject areas. Academic and social progress is rewarded at every opportunity and all the children thrive in a learning environment that is both challenging and supportive. Your child will be encouraged to have good manners, respect for others and themselves, and as the children gain self-confidence and learn to take responsibility for their own learning, to develop good study habits.
