Parent InvolvementWe have an open door policy for parents to join in on our daily routines whenever they wish. We also run parent evenings on topics of interest, sometimes with guest speakers. These are a great way for parents to be informed and to meet other parents.
Our ProgrammeEach week Little Oaks studies a COLOUR, LETTER, SHAPE and NUMBER. Parents receive the letter, number, colour, sheet so they can support their child with this weekly learning activity. Adventure Outings Children go on regular outings to local parks and nature areas. Outings to local supermarkets and shops are also regular learning opportunities.
