Pre-school

We aim to deliver the same level of teaching and care as school nursery and are able to do so on a smaller ratio. Following the 7 areas of learning from the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), the room is set up in defined areas which support children’s learning and development and which match the interests of the children.  We recognise the importance of children being independent and confident learners, we use a range experiences, resources and tools to ensure all children are prepared for school. The pre-school room has defined areas for ICT with a computer, sand and water, creative, maths, writing, role play and imaginative play.

 

 Throughout the day, there is a combination of focused adult led experiences, opportunities to practice letters and numbers and opportunities for the children to choose their own activities. The planned experiences are repeated throughout the week to allow children time to repeat, practice and extend their skills.development and which match the interests of the children.

Our Pre-School staff use Phase 1 of the phonics system Letters and Sounds which will support the children’s early listening and reading skills ready for when they move on to school The staff are supportive of and recognise individual children’s learning and provide Key Group time with their Key Person throughout the day to prepare the children in readiness for starting school.

 

The staff work with the children to embed key principals including: listening, communication, behaviour and confidence. This is achieved through play and by challenging the children’s thinking.
