Our Pre-school is open Monday to Friday 8.45am-11.45am and 12.30pm-3.30pm term time only and we are registered to have 24 children each session. Throughout the session children are able to participate in a range of activities both indoors and outdoors. Activities vary from physical, messy play, exploring, mark making, maths and role play. We pride ourselves on the children’s interests being central to their learning and development.
We continuously ‘Observe, Assess and Plan’ through the children’s play interests following guidelines from the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and we use these observations to record and track the children’s individual development. We recognise that parents are young children’s first educators and welcome their involvement.
We aim to acknowledge and value each child’s individual stage, ability, culture, religion, language and family group. We are committed to the integration of children with disabilities/additional needs and believe that children with additional needs have the right to play and be educated and to develop to their full potential alongside other children.
We offer free sessions to some two year olds and to all three and four year old. We also offer paid sessions at £78 a week for 5×3 hour sessions.
When Ofsted assessed our Pre-School they judged us to be a Good provider and they said:
“Children have a strong relationship with their key person. They are excited to see them on arrival and settle quickly. Children are happy, secure and behave well, which underpins their learning and development effectively”.
