The Joyce Fisher Preschool offers a warm, welcoming and inclusive learning environment for children aged two to six years old.
Our centre has an enriched learning environment which gives children opportunities to explore, experience and develop an enthusiasm for learning. We encourage independence, imagination, responsibility, problem solving and empathy with a focus on creating a love of learning and teaching social skills.
Our purpose-built preschool opened in July 2015. It is bright, open and spacious with a modern environment and facilities.
We are proud of our playground and the fact there is not a plastic slide in sight – it is nature-based and features a mud kitchen, sandpit and a fallen tree trunk to climb on. There is also a balance bridge and veggie gardens.
The fact there is no prescribed way to use the playground encourages and promotes conversation, team work, interaction and imagination.
The concept of the nature-based playground marries up well with the preschool’s visits to Cornwall Park where exploring and learning are encouraged and negotiating hazards and taking calculated risks are taught and discussed.
Our focus on nature, at the preschool and during our visits to Cornwall Park, also teaches a respect of plants and animals.
Qualified and experienced staff members are there to guide the children through their preschool learning experiences.
The Joyce Fisher Preschool caters for a maximum of 20 children, some of them are hearing impaired children from The Hearing House.
