Child-Centered Learning: Guided by Curiosity and Passion
At Dunster Preschool we believe in following the children's interests, ideas, passions, and fascinations. We embrace child-centered learning, allowing their curiosity to lead us through the Early Years Foundation Stage. Our dedicated staff create an environment that encourages exploration and discovery, enabling children to develop a lifelong love for learning.
Nurturing Development: Building Confidence and Independence
Our primary goal is to nurture each child's growth and development. Through our carefully planned activities and engaging curriculum, we promote the building of confidence and independence. Our dedicated team supports children in acquiring essential life skills, fostering their social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development.
Enriching Outdoor Experiences: Embracing Nature
Dunster Preschool values the importance of outdoor learning experiences. All children have the opportunity to participate in Fundamentals and Forest School activities at least once a week. Our inspiring outdoor area provides a safe and stimulating space for children to explore and connect with nature. Through free-flow access to the outdoor learning environment, we encourage a sense of wonder and promote a deep appreciation for the natural world.
Seamless Transition to Reception: A Foundation for Success
Although operating as an independent setting, being based on site of Dunster First School means we have a close partnership with the school and their Reception teachers. By aligning our curriculum and planning, we ensure a seamless transition for children moving into Reception.
Our preschool is open all week, offering flexible options for families.
Our opening times are 8.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.
