About Holbrook Pre-School

Holbrook Pre-School is situated in its own building within the grounds of Holbrook Church of England Primary School. We have two dedicated classrooms. The Caterpillar Room is for our younger children. Children normally stay in this room until the term after their third birthday or until a space becomes available in the Butterfly Room. The Butterfly Room is for our children who are three years or older. Both rooms allow children to access play equipment and learning resources of their own choosing. We change activities on a daily basis to compliment our theme of the week. Improving literacy and instilling a love of reading in our children is one of our target areas to build on in 2017. The term literacy is used by some to simply describe reading and writing, but in fact literacy covers a much wider range of learning. Literacy in the early years includes talking about books, print in the environment, early mark making and writing, as well as sharing books and reading. The statutory frameworks for England emphasises the fundamental importance of literacy and sharing books. Introducing literacy at an early age lays the foundation for developing reading and writing skills. We are creating dedicated literacy corners in each room. The corners will have a welcoming homely appearance with comfortable seating and a wide selection of books for the children to enjoy. The entrance hall has a dedicated peg for each child. Coats, bags and shoes are left here at drop off and slippers can be left here until your child's next session.
