(Shilbottle Pre-School) EY410616


Welcome to Friendly Frogs Pre-School

A happy, comfortable, fun and caring setting for little ones to play, learn and explore!

With highly qualified staff and lots of fun stimulating activities, children in our setting have the opportunity to learn and develop through the many available play based activities.

Outstanding in all areas - Ofsted 2015

"The quality of teaching is outstanding. Staff are well qualified, which has a very positive
impact on children's learning. Staff are entirely in tune with children's learning. They
skilfully support and challenge children during planned and freely chosen play." [Ofsted 2015]

“Children have excellent opportunities to explore outdoors. They have access to a range of well-equipped outdoor spaces that support and challenge their physical skills. Children are given responsibility for their own safety. For example, they complete risk assessments of particular activities or equipment, giving them powerful learning opportunities to consider risks and how to stay safe” [Ofsted 2015]

Shilbottle Primary School

'Fun, Respect and Friendship'

Located within the grounds of Shilbottle Primary School we often share some of the fantastic resources that the school has to offer, this includes their large playground, enclosed grassy areas, Indoor PE hall and warm cooked meals. Children that go on to attend the Primary School have the opportunity to attend taster sessions in their reception class well before their first full day in reception. This is a fantastic opportunity for children to meet their new teacher and become comfortable with their new surroundings. This has proven to make the move a very smooth transition.
