When your child moves into the Pre-School room, we offer the option for them to participate in swimming lessons, at Ashton Leisure Centre, on a Monday morning. We have room for 11 children, to travel in nursery vehicles, which are fully equipped with booster seats. Three members of staff will go in the water with the children, for a half hour lesson, which is taken by a fully qualified swimming instructor. The children will get the opportunity to earn badges and certificates, from their achievements. (Optional extra cost)
We also offer swimming lessons to our Trackers out of school club, on a Tuesday evening, at Ashton Leisure Centre. (Please see the section titled Before/After school Club).
French / Spanish
On a Tuesday Morning, we provide an hour French lesson and Wednesday afternoon, we provide an hour Spanish lesson to our Pre-School children, which is optional. The teacher plans activities per term, which includes stories and arts and crafts. Parents are provided with information so that the learning can continue at home if desired.
Mini Maestros is a well established company that provides music classes for all ages of children throughout our nursery. The 0-3 year’s session is a Wednesday morning. The sessions run in 6 week blocks, and cover a wide range of activities, such as movement, singing, playing instruments, sound effect stories, listening and interacting, and building on children’s confidence. Different cultures of music in the world around us, from classical to contemporary are also explored. Again this is optional.
