Grays Pre-school

Here at Little Roo’s pre-school we aim to provide a safe and nurturing environment, where children’s individuality is respected and valued. By allowing the children to have free choice in the resources this enables them to have individual liberty and encourage them to become confident and assertive as the grow and work towards their next steps based on the EYFS curriculum.

We allow the children to direct their learning, our staff are here to enhance their knowledge and not to lead it.

A caring staff team that is well trained and supported will encourage the children in their social interactions to help children become school ready.

Little Roo’s pre-school is committed to establish quality relationships with all parents based on mutual respect and trust. We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children and should be centrally involved in their child’s education. We welcome and value parents’ comments and suggestions and strive to create excellent communication and links to outside pre-school professions.

  • To provide a safe, caring, and stimulating environment for all children to play & learn which is friendly and welcoming.
