Progression into Pre-Prep

Early Years learning the right way

At Little Martin's Nursery, we pride ourselves on providing a seamless and nurturing transition from early years into Pre-Prep and beyond. Our comprehensive approach ensures that children are not only academically prepared but also emotionally and socially ready to take the next step in their educational journey. 

A Stepping Stone For Your Child’s Future 

At Little Martin's Nursery, we ensure a smooth transition through a welcoming and supportive environment and a wide range of activities designed to stimulate curiosity, creativity, and confidence. Our balanced combination of structured and child-led activities helps children develop their skills and knowledge at their own pace, making them ‘Reception ready.’ 

Seamless Transition 

Our dedicated staff work closely with each child to ensure smooth progression into the Pre-Prep stage. Through a carefully planned curriculum and continuous assessment, we ensure that each child's individual needs and learning styles are met. This personalised approach helps build a strong foundation in key areas such as literacy, numeracy, and critical thinking skills. 

Building Confidence and Independence 

In the Pre-Prep phase, we focus on developing children's confidence and independence. Our engaging and interactive teaching methods encourage children to take initiative, ask questions, and explore their interests. By promoting a growth mindset, we help our students become resilient and enthusiastic learners. 

Holistic Development 

We believe that education goes beyond academics. At St Martin's Pre-Prep, we place a strong emphasis on the holistic development of each child. Our broad curriculum includes opportunities for physical education, creative arts, music, and drama, ensuring that every child can discover and nurture their unique talents. 

Preparing for the Future 

As children progress through Pre-Prep and prepare for entry into our Prep School, we equip them with the skills and knowledge they need for future success. Our commitment to early excellence and academic rigour ensures that our students are well-prepared for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. 

A Supportive Community 

At Little Martin's Nursery and St Martin's Pre-Prep, we develop a close-knit and supportive community where every child feels valued and included. Our small class sizes allow for individual attention and a personalised learning experience. We work in partnership with parents to support each child's development and celebrate their achievements. 

Looking Ahead 

Progression beyond Pre-Prep is an exciting time for our students. With a strong foundation in place, they are ready to embrace the opportunities and challenges of Prep School and beyond. We continue to support their journey with a focus on academic excellence, personal growth, and a love of learning that will last a lifetime.
