The last year is the Foundation Year. The pre-school does not appear to follow a structured framework, such as the Early Years Foundation Stage, but equally it is very clear Butterflies sets up a program that clearly takes into account this is the final year before more formal education begins. Exactly what that program is however is not made clearby the pre-school.
Butterflies Nursery is open from 6:30am (although the nursery day does not start until 8:30 am) to 6:30pm. The pre-school also offers after-school day-care facilities for children who are of a school going age.
