About

Our Aims

We aim to provide a well-ordered, safe, stimulating and happy environment in which the children are encouraged through a variety of activities to learn through play.

We work to the guidelines of Good Practice for Pre-schools, issued by the Pre-school Learning Alliance, of which we are members. In accordance with current government educational policy, we follow The Early Years Foundation Stage Principles. The Early Years Foundation Stage Setting the Standards for Learning, Development and Care for children from birth to five. Adhering to the following aspects:

  • A Unique Child – every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
  • Positive Relationships – children learn to be strong and independent from a base of a loving and secure relationship with parents and/or a key person.
  • Enabling Environments – the environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning.
  • Learning and Development –The early years foundation stage is made up of six equally important interconnected areas of learning and development. Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and the six areas together make up the skills, knowledge and experiences appropriate for children as they grow, learn and develop. The six areas are Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Communication Language and Literacy; Problem Solving; Reasoning and Numeracy; Knowledge and Understanding of the world; Physical Development and Creative Development.

 

Working Together For Your Children

The pre-school has a high ratio of adults to children in the setting 1:4 for children under 3 and 1:8 for children over 3.

This helps us to:

  • Give time and attention to each child.
  • Talk with the children about their interests and activities.
  • Help children to experience and benefit from the activities we provide.
  • Allow the children to explore and be adventurous in safety.

 

We receive regular OFSTED inspections under the 13 National Standards, and copies of the respective reports can be found on OFSTED’s website or alternatively we are able to provide you with a copy should you wish.
