Curriculum

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

Please see below for a parents guide.

OUR PRESCHOOLS OFFER THE FOLLOWING SERVICE:

  • We are open five days per week.
  • The preschools are open up to 38 weeks each year.
  • We are closed during normal school holidays.
  • We offer care and education for young children between the ages of 2½ and 5 at Springfield  and between 2 and 5 at Pages Lane.

 

THE SESSION

The pre-school organises its sessions so that the children can choose from, and work at, a range of activities and, in doing so, build up their ability to select and work through a task to its completion. The children are also helped and encouraged to take part in adult-led small and large group activities e.g. cooking and games, which introduces them to new experiences and helps them to gain new skills, as well as helping them to learn to work with others.

SNACKS AND DRINKS

345 makes snacks part of a social time we call “circle time” at which children and adults eat together. We ask parents to bring a variety of foods for snacks including bread, rice cakes, crackers, fruit and vegetables. Milk and water are provided.
