Curriculum

Throughout the pre-school session, the children are encouraged to be initiators and decision-makers, enabling them to construct their own knowledge through active learning. We try to ensure that each child has equal access to a wide range of learning experiences.

Policies and procedures

Our policies and procedures are always accessible at pre-school in the main pre-school room.

 

Curriculum

Preschool follows the Early Learning Goals. These are set in place by the current Government and establish expectations for most children to reach by the end of the foundation stage. The foundation stage is a new stage of education for children aged from three to the end of reception year at school.

The Early Learning Goals provide the basis for curriculum planning throughout the foundation stage, laying a secure base for future learning. They are organised into seven areas of learning:

  • Personal, social and emotional
  • Communication and language
  • Literacy
  • Maths
  • Understanding the world
  • Physical
  • Expressive arts and design

We are committed to offering a high-quality educational provision. Our play leaders spend a great deal of time planning a curriculum around these areas of learning. Children have individual observation folders, kept up-to-date by their key person, which parents can view at any time. Regular parents meetings are held to discuss their child’s progress.
