Welcome to the Kindergarten

Children join the Kindergarten when they are 4 years old.  The boys and girls who move up from our Nursery find it a very easy transition and those who join us for the first time are soon comfortable in our warm, caring environment.  Some may find a whole week quite tiring and, therefore, we offer parents the chance to break them gently into full-time hours by giving two optional afternoons in the Autumn Term and one the Spring Term.

This is the first time that the children have to wear a school uniform and many of them are very proud when they arrive sporting their new blazers.

Each child is paired up with a Year VI buddy, who helps them put their tractorsuit on at break time and guides them carefully round the playground.  Often these relationships become very strong and last well after the boys and girls leave Brooke Priory.

Every day is charged with new challenges and it is wonderful to watch our young pupils grow in confidence and blossom into happy, successful learners.  Inquisitive and eager to broaden their knowledge and develop their skills.
