Pre School

The Pre-School is registered with the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales for 40 children aged 2 to 4 years.  The children follow a project based curriculum.  Learning is through both structured and purposeful play activities and also includes plenty of opportunity for spontaneous play.  We work towards the standards set down by the Welsh Assembly Government.  The children are encouraged to take part in a range of experiences which are appropriate to their individual level of development.  Outoor play is encouraged whenever the weather permits and this includes regular outings within the locality.  We have an extensive all weather surface for the children to play on throughout the year and we have just installed a large wooden adventure play trail.

The senior teacher in charge of the day to day running of the Pre-School is Miss Glen, an experienced early years teacher who has been teaching at Princess Road School since 1986.
