The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum
At this point, we start to introduce a little more structure to the day – the team in the Pre-School room continue to work with the children towards the basic requirements of the EYFS curriculum (which your child’s school will continue to follow until they finish Reception class).
Pre-School is led by an Early Years Teacher
The Pre-School Room is led by a degree qualified Early Years Teacher, supported by NVQ Level 3 Nursery Practitioners. With fantastic knowledge of all elements of the EYFS Curriculum, the Pre-School teacher plans rich and engaging group and individual activities, as well as ensuring that each learning area in the Pre-School room is full of fantastic resources, intentionally placed to captivate the children in purposeful play.
High Ratios = Individual Attention
Pre-School maintains adult:children ratios of 1:8 (we are proud to say this is better than in a School Nursery class which is 1:13). This means that at Muddy Boots your little ones can really benefit from all the individual care and attention they need before moving on to school.
Transition to Primary School
The teacher’s aim in Pre-School is to instil and encourage self-confidence and a real enjoyment of learning so when they finally fly from the Muddy Boots nest, they’re self-assured and raring to go. Practitioners work closely with all schools to ensure that strong communication ensures a smooth transition.
Muddy Boots mostly attracts families from inside the local school’s catchment areas – the children in the Pre-School room are often with the same children who will go on to be in their class at school.
All parents and close family members of Pre-School children leaving for school are invited to our fantastic Summer Leaver’s Festival. There’s usually a few tears shed by all at this point!

Starting with a brew and an opportunity to get to know each other, you will then be taken round the nursery by one of our management team, having a good round all our rooms, exploring our outdoor spaces, meeting our fantastic team and having plenty of time to ask any & all questions you have.
