The Pre-School Rooms are divided into specific learning zones, enabling children to take part in activities that promote:
- Personal, social and emotional development
- Communication and language
- Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy
- Knowledge and understanding of the world
- Physical development
- Creative development
Children with Special Educational Needs and those who have English as an additional language are very well planned for and we receive specialist support from the local councils and schools.
We welcome some very special guests throughout the year, including the police, fire service, dentists and nurses.
To support their learning and understanding, we take the children on supervised trips to the local police station, supermarket, park and high street (with prior parental consent)
And as a way of encouraging children to be an independent as possible, they serve and feed themselves, choose their own snack, help set up and tidy away activities, and independently use the toilet.
We value the close relationship we have with parents, so in addition to the weekly diaries we send out, we also hold more formal parents’ evenings twice a year, where you can see your child’s progress.
When your child moves to school, we send completed transition documents so that the school can see the stage at which he/she is at and a learning journey profile, which has a detailed history of your child’s learning.
