What Other Learning Opportunities Might The Pre-School/Nursery Provide?

School trips

Children may go on day trips, perhaps to a local library, shop, park, farm, museum or exhibition. These trips are not compulsory but they are meant to support your child’s learning and can be a great deal of fun. As a certain number of adults may be needed to accompany the children, you may be asked to go along.

You will usually be asked to sign a form giving your permission for your child to go on the trip. There may be a small cost for fares or entrance fees and you might have to provide a packed lunch.

Schools don’t want children to be excluded from the learning opportunities provided by school trips, so they can sometimes offer financial assistance for parents who have difficulty meeting any costs.
