Naval Under Fives/ Pre-Schools and Under Threes

Naval Under Fives
Naval Under Fives are to be found in all main Naval Estates, providing sessional care for children aged two years nine months to school age. Some groups are also able to take younger children - even babies. We aim to ensure that for each child the time spent with us is an enjoyable learning experience in a safe, happy and welcoming environment.

For further information please contact: Mrs. Carole Eley MBE.

Under Threes
Two groups on the Rowner Estate are registered with Social Services for children this age. Some groups on other estates also have a few sessions for children this age. The staff are fully qualified and experienced in this age group. The ratio is three children to each member of staff, enabling the children to have a very high level of attention. The sessions are for two hours, giving parents a short break and children an opportunity to play with others.



Pre-Schools
There are pre-schools on most of the Service estates in the Portsmouth port area, all of which are registered with Social Services, DfES and other Portsmouth or Hampshire Early Years Partnerships. The Office of Standards in Education (OFSTED) has inspected us and every group has passed each inspection at a very high standard. The reports of these inspections and those of Social Services are available in the groups for parents to read.

The staff and children work towards the Early Years Goals set by the Department of Education and these cover the following areas:

  1. Personal, social and emotional development.
  2. Knowledge and understanding of the world.
  3. Communication, language and literacy.
  4. Mathematical development.
  5. Physical development.
  6. Creative development.

In order to ensure children receive the attention they need there is a ratio of one staff member to six children. All leaders and deputies are qualified and many staff are currently attending training courses. There are qualified Fist Aiders in each group. Children with special needs are accepted and where necessary a designated extra member of staff is provided to attend to an individual child. Children from any of the Armed Forces are welcome.
