All about Big Tiggers Class

We are open all-year round for 3 & 4 year olds, which is preparing for the majority of our children to go to school at the end of this year. This room is for children who attend nursery throughout the school year and during holiday times – some of the children are funded, whilst others are not.

Children who aren’t quite old enough to move up into primary school at the end of the school year will instead be in the Little Tiggers class, which is the following years preschool cohort.

To prepare children for school, staff help children understand their own feelings and behaviour, as well as consequences. Children also learn how to share their views and encourage children to vote on different actions in the room, such as choosing what their role play area is going to be, what activity they want to do, etc.

The children are encouraged by staff to be active, both in their learning and in their day-to-day life, such as going outside to explore and play, and offering the children various workshops to take part in such as the literacy corner, numeracy corner, and book corner.
