Our Pre-School opening hours are:
Monday to Friday 8.45am/9.00am – 3.00pm/3.15pm
Our Pre-School is accessible to all children, providing children with adventures and opportunities that are child-led and engaging, promoting all areas in the Early Years Foundation Stage and emphasising on an active learning approach.
We believe that children develop at their own pace and provide appropriate activities for children to achieve their developmental goals through a high-quality play experience. Promoting outdoor play, we emphasis on the health benefits that the outdoors provides.
Our Pre-school has a dedicated, loving team, valuing the importance of positive relationships and partnerships with parents and carers. Each child has a key person; a key person observes and plans effectively alongside the children’s interests. We upload observations onto Tapestry which parents have access to; we believe it is important for parents to be involved in their child’s development. Tapestry gives parents the opportunity to upload observations for the staff to see, encouraging positive parent partnership.
