What do Children Learn?

Through our activities we give children time to experience, experiment and to develop physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually, in line with the “Early Years Foundation Stage 2014. Our Open ended resources and areas cover the following learning outcomes, as well as promoting child led activities:

Communication and language development involves giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations.

Physical development involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food.

Personal, social and emotional development involves helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves, and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities.

Literacy development involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Children are given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest.

• Mathematics involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems; and to describe shapes, spaces, and measures.

Understanding the world involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.

Expressive arts and design your child’s keyperson will keep a record which is a scrapbook of artwork and during their time with us.  They will record your child’s progress which will include pictures and observations covering all areas of the curriculum using our online learning journal TAPESTRY.  More information about TAPESTRY can be found here

We use an online learning journal to record your achievements and wow moments.  It is completely interactive so you can also send us pictures and descriptions of your child's wow moments at home.  Please click on the link below for more information.

How Preschool is run.

The Preschool is run on behalf of the parents by our committee which is made up of parents, staff members and a representative from the Baptist Church.  It is the committee which employs the staff, who are responsible for the day-to-day running of the Preschool and the care of the children.

The Committee also organise fundraising activities which help to keep fees down as well as providing opportunities for parents, staff and committee to get together.
The Preschool has in place policies relating to all aspects of its activities including Special Educational Needs (SEN), toilet training, equal opportunities etc.  Our policies are reviewed regularly.  You will be given an information pack shortly before your child starts Preschool, which includes all the Preschool policies and general information about Preschool.

The committee members are all busy people, who meet once every half term.  If you are interested in having a say in the way Preschool is run, please contact our Manager who will be delighted to advise you further.
