When your child starts at Pre School, you want to know that their needs and welfare are paramount.
Our philosophy is to help all children feel settled and happy within our school, as these feelings are essential
For a child of any age to develop positive self image, and to learn in a fun and supported manner.
Pre school can be the first experience your child will have of care outside the home and/or immediate family.
We want your child to feel loved, welcome and secure in our environment, and the next step in developing these secure foundations is to assign a key-carer for your child who will be your primary daily contact.
Our motto is “we have fun” we believe that children learn best when they are happy, confident and having fun.
We believe in giving the children choice in their activities, and we plan the environment looking at the children's likes, interests, and opportunities for learning that we hope they will enjoy.
We put on seasonal activities and trips out which include Fundraising fun for Children In Need, Christmas Pantomime, Cooking and Tri-lakes Day.
Twice a year we stage our very own Finches productions. At Christmas, we put on a traditional Nativity Play and at Easter time we get creative and pen our very own script. We end the summer term with a fundraising Sport's Day/Summer lunch, where parents, carers and grandparents are invited to join in the fun.
Our planning, observing and recording of children successes and progress is maintained following the guidance from Ofsted and the Early Years Foundation Stage. As part of this, we will keep information on your child's progress in an interactive online learning resource where parents and teachers are able to access the learning journey throughout the sessions. Its great to see the children and what they get up to at pre-school and leave comments for your childs key person to read.
When your child leaves us, this folder is yours to take home and keep as a record of their learning and achievements in their time at pre school.
