The general aim of the pre-school is to create a happy, secure and stimulating environment where children can be encouraged to develop to their full potential, not only intellectually but socially, physically and emotionally. To work in partnership with parents and provide activities that will promote effective learning, we aim to deliver an exciting, varied and progressive curriculum ensuring practitioner’s support and extend children’s learning and development.  We aim to offer a service that promotes equality and values diversity.

Each child will be allocated a key person who will link with the family to support and plan for the child’s progress within the Early Years Foundation Stage.

If you have any concern around toilet training please advise your key person on your pre-visits. The pre-school has nappy changing facilities. Children will be encouraged to wash hands after using the toilet, blowing their noses, coughing, painting, gluing etc. and before eating and drinking.

Newsletters, information and invoices will be sent via email for those who have requested this form of communication.  All information regarding pre-school matters will be displayed on the notice board and paper copies will be given to those who have no access to the internet.  Please remember to check your emails on a regular basis. Should you make any changes to your email address, contact telephone or emergency numbers, please remember it is your responsibility to ensure this information is passed on to the pre-school.

Parent’s involvement within the pre-school

Parents and Carers are encouraged to take part in all aspects of the pre-school and can attend a session if they so wish.  We believe that this involvement is a vital part of your child’s early years.  Keyworkers will make time to listen to families and discuss any concerns. During the session you will have the opportunity to be part of the team, assisting with activities. Parents are given the opportunity to propose and vote on aspects of the pre-school at any given time.
Parents will be emailed a parent handbook on the child’s visit days prior to starting pre-school.

Insurance is with Royal Sun Alliance through the Pre-school Learning Alliance. The certificate is on display on the notice board in our entrance hall.
