A Pre-School Day
Indoor Free Play
A variety of planned activities are set out around the pre-school in accordance with the children's next steps and each area within the EYFS curriculum. Activities are made to look inviting and exciting along with catering for children's individual interests which helps encourage the children to experience a wide range of new experiences.
We always ensure that there is a variety of messy play activities available for the children which enables and supports their sensory development as well as their development of mathematical skills and their scientific lines of enquiry.
We ask for each child to bring in a named water bottle which is kept in the drinks tray so that all children have access to water at any point during their day.
We operate a rolling snack time, the children choose when to join the snack table when they are ready to take a break in their play. They are responsible for their own snack; choosing what they would like, cutting it up themselves, pouring their own milk or water and washing up their items when they have finished. This creates independence skills within the children, preparing them for primary school.
Outdoor Free Play
We are lucky enough to have a large enclosed outside area. Being outdoors is the very best place for children to practice and master their emerging physical skills. It is outside that our pre-schoolers can fully and freely experience gross motor skills such as running, jumping and climbing.
We operate a free flow system which enables the children access to the garden at all times throughout their session. Just like inside, the garden is set up daily in line with the childrens' next steps, each area of the EYFS curriculum and include adult led activities, giving the children a wide variety of learning opportunities.
We are passionate about children experiencing a wide range of learning and activities in our setting.
On Monday and Wednesday mornings we have PE sessions either in the local Primary School hall or school field. These are run by a local company and our teacher Ben uses his wealth of knowledge and experience to engage and enthuse the children about getting active. The children love to learn to catch, run, skip, jump and lots more!
There are many dressing up outfits and small world toys to encourage imaginative play, quiet spaces to read or reflect and many places to explore new things and experiences.
