Snowdrops Pre-School

Snowdrops Pre-School is a joint venture between Ashdell School and Birkdale. It is a Pre-School for girls and boys, from the term before their 3rd birthday until they are ready to start school. Snowdrops provides the perfect Pre-School environment, especially when considering Birkdale Prep School for your son. Here he will forge lasting friendships which can continue as he progresses into school life.
Snowdrops nurtures each child’s natural curiosity in an enriched, secure environment which allows the freedom to develop individual strengths and desire to learn. This is done through a carefully planned curriculum which enables children to explore their world. It gives them the tools and skills to develop their confidence and a sense of achievement. A balance of focussed activities and independent choice ensures each child blossoms and matures at his or her own pace. Learning through play is central, ensuring the children have a true sense of wellbeing and that they enjoy their Snowdrops experience.
"The friendly and welcoming staff at Snowdrops provide the children with a warm and caring atmosphere. The staff clearly enjoy being with the children and this encourages them to grow in confidence both socially and academically.
My son loved his Snowdrop days and was often reluctant to be collected at home time! He was having far too much fun with his friends. He had an opportunity to learn to recognise and write letters, enjoy singing and playing simple musical instruments and on a Thursday there was great excitement as it was tennis that afternoon.
My son had a fantastic time at Snowdrops and starting school with many of his Snowdrops friends made the transition into his reception year so much easier."
