Welcome to Abbey 345 Preschool

Abbey 345 Preschool is a committee run Charitable Incorporated Organisation, that has been providing Pre-school care and education within Crowland, Lincolnshire for over 30 years. We are situated within the grounds of South View Primary School, in modern, purpose-built premises.

Our ethos is for children to learn through play and exploration in surroundings where all families are welcomed, valued and enabled to become part of our learning community. Our role is to provide a safe, stimulating environment where, with the support of our highly qualified, experienced and enthusiastic staff, children can develop at their own individual pace.

Thorough knowledge of a range of Theorists (including Piaget, Bruner and Vygotsky) and Early Years Approaches (such as Froebel, Te Whariki and Reggio Emilia) underpins all our practice. This enables us to provide exciting opportunities to engage and extend learning with all our children whatever their interests and enthusiasms.  Children are offered a wide variety of activities and situations in which they will be encouraged to use their imagination and advance their social skills.

We break up for Half term on Friday 24th May and return Monday 3rd June.

What we have been learning about?

We have been enjoying regular dance sessions with Hayley from the Crowland Dance Company.  Using the medium of dance we have ridden the waves with Moana, stolen carrots from Mr McGregor’s garden with Peter Rabbit and channelled our inner Prince/Princess (& so much more).

We are practicing seasonal and animal yoga, standing like trees, pretending to be falling rain, flying like birds and exhaling excess energy (& toxins) using lion breath – all followed by a few minutes of relaxation & mindfulness to classical music.

We are awaiting the arrival of this year’s caterpillars – ready to watch their journey & transformation into beautiful butterflies.
