One of our principal aims for Preschool children is to ensure they receive high quality care and early education. We deliver this in child centred preschool rooms in accordance with the principles from the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). By advocating this approach to learning we are enhancing their preparation for the world of ‘big school’.
We provide a balanced provision of adult supported and play experiences within rich, stimulating indoor and outdoor environments. We ensure these environments include complexity and challenge, with the aim of encouraging children’s initiative and development of skills. We support our children’s development and consolidation of these skills and concepts by giving them the time and opportunities to make sense of their world, grow in confidence, and for them to believe in themselves as capable and powerful learners.
We believe our children strive in an environment where they have first hand experiences of the world around them. We commit to this by encouraging our children’s encounters and discoveries in their local community through the display of their creative projects and the development of strong links with local schools. This also leads to a busy and exciting week which may include visits from specialists in dance, music, language, football etc.
Our progressive approach to the EYFS ensures high quality delivery of the EYFS. The EYFS sets out three prime areas and four specific areas of learning which are:
Parents are kept up to date with their child’s developmental progress towards the EYFS early learning goals in a variety of ways - daily verbal and written communication, twice yearly written progress reports, Foundation Stage meetings, individual child profiles and curriculum information evenings.
