As an independent pre-school, Little Owls is able to define its own curriculum. We fully support the Department of Education’s Early Years programme but we supplement this in many ways. So much of learning at this age is dependent upon structured learning through play and we have fantastic facilities and equipment for this, including a lovely shaded terrace and ample grassed playing fields. However, we also favour more formal learning arrangements as the children develop and these are introduced as the children grow and mature. We also have the huge benefit of being able to draw upon our Junior and Senior School staff to provide high quality specialist teaching in music, dance, PE and French.
