Little Crickets is open during term time and weekdays only. Sessions run between 8.15am and 12.45pm.

We now offer Longer Days on Mondays and Thursdays, from 8:15am to 2:45pm.

We base all our activities during these sessions, on the new EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) which came into force in September 2012. This has three prime ares of learning:

3.    Physical Development

and four specific ares of learning:

1.    Understanding of the World
2.    Literacy
3.    Expressive Artsand Design
4.    Mathematics.

Thus, our activities during the morning will include:

a.    Develop mathematical and language skills
b.    Encourage the ability to make choices
c.    Encourage the expressing of ideas
d.    Discover and explore
e.    Share thoughts
f.     Make decisions
g.    Engage in first-hand experience
