Pre-Prep Curriculum

In the Pre-Prep we provide our pupils with a varied and interesting learning environment, and offer a carefully balanced curriculum. Areas of learning focus on:

  • Literacy/Phonics
  • Numeracy
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication & Language
  • Physical Development
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts & Design

There are specialist areas to enable creative learning and an outside classroom giving plenty of scope for all-weather outside learning and play. We have specialist teaching for PE, Music and French.

Here at The Maynard the girls are very much part of a real family setting. We help them to learn what is expected of them, to make new friends, resolve differences and acquire the social skills and manners to last them a lifetime.
