Holly Tree don’t just have a pre-school room, we have a fantastic new building for our all pre-school children!
Designed for children aged between 3 and 5 years of age with a ratio of 1 adult to 8 children. Our fantastic new preschool facility is situated within the old school house of St James Catholic Primary School, St James’ Rd, Orrell, Wigan WN5 7AA
The new pre-school is set up to cater for all seven areas of learning:
- Personal, Social & Emotional.
- Communication and language.
- Physical development
- Understanding of the World
- Expressive art and design
Within our pre-school we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and have started to build links with the local schools. Regular observations are done on each child to monitor their growing development, each child is treated as an equal meeting their individual needs, promoting independence and self-esteem.
To promote independence in this room the children are able to access all areas of learning as they wish. With regards to the focused activity offered daily, children have the free choice whether to access this or not. The focused activity will coincide with the topic area that is covered over a six week period.
Sand and water are available throughout the day. On occasions alternatives are used such as, shredded paper, soil and pasta. The paint on the painting easel is changed daily with the four primary colours.The staff promote independence in your child, and with your help and support, prepare your child for graduating Holly Tree and starting school.

Comment for Fun French Teacher
Each week the Pre-School children receive French Lessons from am outside agency. Nursery Staff work alongside our tutor helping to create a happy, safe learning environment in which children are encouraged to achieve their full potential. The children are a pleasure to teach; they enthusiastic, confident, well- mannered and impeccably behaved. I would recommend this Nursery to all prospective parents without hesitation (Carol Sayah, Director-Fun French)
