The aim of our Pre-School is about creating smiles! Ensuring that the children are happy, confident and feel safe & secure. We provide a bright and happy environment for children to learn and develop. We encourage expression of needs, thoughts and feelings through play and encourage independence and confidence while socialising with the other children. All of our planning within Pre-School follows the Guidelines of the EYFS (this is the Statutory Framework for The Early Years Foundation Stage). All of our planned activities include all 3 prime areas of learning: Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. This also covers areas such as – Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the world, Expressive Arts and Design.
Pre-School is taught through a multi-sensory, play based approach including messy and physical outdoor play. In order for your child to feel free to explore and experiment with all kinds of materials and equipment, clothes should be easily washable and not restrict the child’s movements.
We are self- funding charity and rely on fees and fundraising events, any money raised is used to replace and upgrade equipment.
