At Pre-school we take children from the age of 2. We have qualified, highly trained and experienced staff that will care for your children, providing a variety of sensory play experiences to encourage language and develop their explorative senses. We follow the Development Matters document and focus on the prime areas which are, personal social and emotional development, communication and language and physical development. Each child has their own key person who is responsible for observations, tracking and the up keep of their learning journey. We offer either morning or afternoon sessions.
Morning session starts at 8:30am – 11:35am Afternoon session starts at 12:15pm – 3:15pm
The children will bring home their WOW books once a week. Each week we will put a note in the book telling you what we are talking about and focusing on that week. We will also give you ideas of things you can do at home to support your child. The children will have time to share their books during small group time. If you could write a quick note about what you have done with your child in the book, let them put something in their book or add any photos or tickets, brochures from places you have visited or things you have done at home it would be lovely for the children to be able to talk to us about these. We ask you to bring them in on a Wednesday to be updated.
Stay And Play
Each half term we hold a Stay and Play session for parents, grandparents, carers etc to spend a session in Pre-school with the children. These sessions are designed to be fun for everyone and the children enjoy having you in to play. It also gives you the opportunity to see what the children do.
We try and have a theme for each session such as Christmas, Numbers, Literacy and you will be able to see and join in with some of the activities the children do to develop their skills. We alternate the times and days of the sessions to try and enable as many parents to attend as possible.
Please take a look at these links and websites for ideas and information that you may find useful for supporting your child at home:
Please read some of our feedback we received from a recent parent and carers questionnaire…..
“Very helpful members of staff, always there when you need advice. Also help when the children need help to reach their milestones and help the parent along with the children”
“Staff always have time to tell you about your child’s day and there are always fun tasks planned”
“I was nervous about sending my child to Pre-school but all the staff have helped and he is very happy so I am wanting more sessions next term”
“He is receiving the best quality”
“I would like to say thank you to all the staff at Pre-school for everything they have done and thank you for supporting me”
