Little Lochies will be located at the heart of Lochinver House, on the ground floor of our purpose-built Pre Prep, with access, both to its own free flow play areas, as well as to the magic and adventures found within our outdoor classroom. Little Lochies will provide a seamless transition into Reception, when the time comes.
Little Lochies will offer a bespoke, exciting, and broad curriculum, designed to capture each child’s curiosity. Learning will be engaging and fun, opening up a world of wonder where personal interests can flourish. It will be led by a qualified teacher, supported by experienced teaching assistants, and enhanced by specialist staff. Having a qualified teacher will ensure our Little Lochies will make the most confident strides forward on their educational journey in readiness for the start of their formal schooling years. Individualised attention will enhance progress and our digital tracking system Tapestry, will ensure effective communication with parents. Developing an early sense of security and happiness is key. The boys will relish subject lessons for music, PE and Welly Time, taught by our specialist teachers, ensuring that when they start Reception, they are confident having already built key relationships with the wider School staff.
The boys will make use of all of the facilities within the School, including the sports hall, the theatre, the library, the Pre-prep play areas and adventure playground, the dining rooms and fields. They will have opportunities to be part of our Extended Care provision and have an extra-curricular programme with activities including Sports Stars, Create Club and Rhythm Time.
Our aim is to know and nurture each and every child, ensuring that they have the highest standards of care and pre-School education. Most importantly, we want to develop our children to be resilient, creative, independent, and confident learners, as they prepare to start their school journey.
