In the Kindergarten at St Martin’s we aim to provide an enjoyable, secure and stimulating environment in which each boy can fulfill their potential. The boys are able to build firm foundations through promoting confidence and increasing independence enabling them to make the transition to the Pre-Prep.
We follow the curriculum based on the Early Years Foundation Stage which includes Personal, social and emotional development, Physical development, Communication and language, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the world and Expressive arts and design.
Communication with parents is important to us. Parents are greeted at the beginning of the session by Mrs S Tearle at the Kindergarten entrance and information can be written in the message book. There is an Information Evening at the beginning of the academic year which provides an understanding of how we can work together to promote your son’s development both academically and socially. A Parents’ Consultation Evening takes place in October and March and parents receive a written report at the end of the year.
Pre and After School Care operate in the Pre-Prep Hall from 8.00am to 8.30am and 3.00pm to 6.00pm. Boys are able to do their homework and take part in a variety of activities. A charge is made by the hour and includes a snack and a drink.
