We feel that routines for young children help them settle more quickly, feeling safe and secure in the knowledge of what ‘happens next’.
A member of staff will become your child's Key Person giving your child a 'special' adult in the setting that will foster their well-being and assess their learning.
We feel that strong partnerships between home and Pre-School are paramount in helping children achieve, we use an online system called Tapestry to ensure parents are kept up to date with their child's development through observations and photos we share with you, we will also offer ideas to support learning at home and ask you tell us about your child's achievements.
We ensure that our environment, routines, activities and resources both indoors and outdoors will enable children to progress through the Early Years Foundation Stage.
