Moira House Pre-Prep department is a creative and open plan learning environment, designed for teaching, learning and the development of children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. The Pre-Prep School has been specifically equipped with the latest state-of-the-art IT technology to help boost our pupils knowledge of the world around them.
The Pre-Prep department benefits from skilled and experienced teachers, who are totally dedicated to the growth and development of each child. Individual study plans have been designed around an enhanced National Curriculum and The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS). Girls are taught using the EYFS Curriculum until they excel from their Reception class. From Year 1, they are taught using the enhanced National Curriculum which incorporates a wide variety of teaching skills to help encourage learning by making their studies more engaging and child focused.
Girls at Moira House Pre-Prep enjoy an extensive range of activities outside of the classroom, such as day trips, outdoor play, welcoming special visitors to the department and sporting activities. Specialist subjects and activities are also available including: Dance, Drama, Music, Swimming, PE, French, Crafts, Choir and Sports. These are in addition to the School’s teaching methods around themed weeks which connect the different curriculum areas of their learning.
At Moira House, every child’s development and growth is our number one priority and as such, we make sure that the learning provisions and equipment in the Pre-Prep department are constantly reviewed and updated or expanded, to make certain that we are providing opportunities which reflect the many diverse interests of the girls in our care.
