The Little Oaks Kindergarten at Oakwood is a hive of happiness and activity. 

The team at the Kindergarten have a wealth of experience and a passion and love for children.We treat every child as an individual and allow the children to develop in their own way, with guidance from us.

The children build on what they have learnt in the Nursery, improving their literacy skills through both the Jolly Phonics and Letters and Sounds schemes. Many children will be able to read by the end of Kindergarten, however it is far more important to us that they are enjoying this learning experience and beginning a lifelong love of books and reading.

We do not view education as a race or a competition, we see it as our responsibility to ensure that each child reaches their potential and this is achieved through solid foundations and the children's happiness in their formative years.

We ask that our Kindergarten pupils attend a minimum of three morning sessions per week whilst they are three years old, rising to four mornings per week as they turn four. This allows us to start some gentle preparation for the next, exciting step in their education.
