Woodpecker Preschool

Woodpecker Pre-school & Foundation Stage Unit

Woodpecker Pre-school was integrated onto the school site in 2004, and in 2008 its partnership with Finstock school was formalised by the establishment of a Partnership Foundation Stage Unit (PFSU). As such, Finstock school provides education for children from aged 3 until secondary school age.

Woodpecker Pre-school is situated in a dedicated foundation stage classroom area which is adjacent to a superbly equipped outdoor classroom. Sessions run from 8.45 a.m. to 12 noon, Monday to Friday. The sessions are available for all children from the age of three, and places are funded from the beginning of the term after their third birthday, for up to five sessions a week. There is an optional lunch club which extends the time to 12.45 p.m.

The staff of Woodprecker Pre-school work closely with the Oak class teacher to plan and implement the foundation stage curriculum together. The children learn through structured play and progress gradually into full-time education in a familiar environment within which they feel secure. We believe that this greatly enhances the educational and personal development of our children.
