Learning through play is the primary objective of the Pre-School team. We want our provision to inspire Active Learning and ensure high levels of engagement from the children whilst they interact with the activities of their choosing, building on an ethos of creativity and critical thinking. We achieve this by providing open ended resources that will not only engage the children’s interests but also create stimulating challenges for them too. An adult is always nearby to scaffold and guide them helping to enhance their learning and development further. We pride ourselves on having just the right balance of Child initiated/led, and Adult led activities, alongside constantly considering the unique child and their characteristics of effective learning. We value each of the seven areas of development with equal weight ensuring the children have a rounded well balanced start to education.
The areas of development covered within the Early Years Foundation stage are;
- Communication and language
- Physical development
- Expressive arts and design
- Personal, social and emotional development
- Understanding the world
