We offer the highest standard of pre-school care and education, where children are provided with a safe, supportive, stimulating and fun environment so that they are able to explore and discover the world and fulfill their potential. We recognise that children learn best where they have plenty of opportunities to enjoy themselves and therefore all our pre-school children are encouraged to develop as learners by planning, questioning and reflecting.
There is a clearly defined learning outcome to our pre-school activities whereby there is a balance of free-flow and adult-led activities. The role of the staff is to support and extend the learning further, developing the children’s spontaneous play and offering planned play-based activities. By observing them regularly and listening to information given by parents, the staff are able to plan activities using the children’s own interests and individual needs.
We recognise that independence is an essential life skill and one that needs to be nurtured from an early age and that independence is important for children to learn to be self-sufficient individuals.Children will thrive in a healthy environment where they have opportunities to do more and more for themselves.
Our Practitioners, recognise that children will only be sufficiently confident to start to deal with the world themselves if they come from a background of security, support and adult love.
