AboutAbout Our Pre-school
What We Stand For
We provide a caring environment which recognises the importance of each child as an individual, whilst we always consider how we are able to meet the needs of each and every child and their family.
We advocate ‘learning through play’ which enables children to learn whilst enjoying themselves. They respond enthusiastically during movement and music sessions. We have both inside and outside space available which is accessed daily, with children being given the choice where they wish to spend their time, although we take every opportunity to spend time outside when we can!
An Environment in which our preschoolers can grow & excel
Each child is treated individually and guided through the Early Years Foundation Stage using observations and individual planning designed by their Key Person, whilst considering the child’s own interests to develop their learning to the fullest. This enables each child to reach their personal goals and targets in a method and speed that suits them.
Key Worker System
The key worker system is at the heart of our planning and communication with parents, as well as
being an integral part of the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) requirements. Each staff member is
assigned a number of 'Key Children'. It is their responsibility to observe and familiarise themselves
with their key children and provide next steps, 2 Year Checks and Unique Stories and ensure that
'their' children are progressing satisfactorily and in line with EYFS guidelines. Another key
element of the key worker system is to develop a close bond with the family and carers to
ensure a smooth and enjoyable preschool journey is achievable for everyone involved.
We liaise with ALL the primary schools in the local vicinity to ensure that your child's educational progression is as seamless as possible.
During our Rising 5 Sessions primary school teachers are invited into the setting to visit with the children who are leaving in the forthcoming term to prepare them for their move to Primary School in September. This ensures the transition is as smooth and worry free for them as possible.
