Chestnut Park Primary School

Chestnut ParkPrimary School


Chestnut Park Pre-School opened in January 2022 and provides education for 3-4 year olds.

At Chestnut Park Pre-School we put children at the heart of every decision we make and every action we take.

We provide an extraordinary education, value individuality and prepare children with the knowledge, skills and values to be lifelong learners in an ever changing world.

We offer innovative learning opportunities that will inspire curiosity, develop inquiring minds and maximise learning potential for all children.

The Pre-School curriculum is enriching, meaningful and active so that our children can become fully immersed in their learning. The children will learn through a series of well-planned ‘themed enquiries’ to engage them in a broad range of learning opportunities.

Our curriculum for the foundation stage is based on the 7 areas of learning within the EYFS Framework.

The 7 areas of leaning are:  Communication and Language, Personal Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the world, Expressive arts and design.

Also influencing the delivery of the curriculum are the 4 themes of the EYFS: The Unique Pupil, Positive Relationships, Enabling Environment, Learning & Development.

Children will learn through fully immersive ‘joy filled’ experiences where their teachers facilitate and challenge them to ensure they can meet their full learning potential.

Early Years Entitlement Funding

The Government provides universal 15 hours funded childcare for 3 and 4-year-olds to attend an early years setting for 38 weeks (190 days) of the year. Children become eligible to receive this funding the term after their 3rd birthday. Parents who are eligible and meet the criteria can apply for the extended 15 hours of funded childcare, meaning a child can attend for 30 hours funded by the government.  In order to claim 3- and 4-year-old funding you will need to bring in your child’s birth certificate or passport and complete a Parent Declaration form at time of registration.

Sessions can be funded fully by Government funding or paid for privately.
