We offer a warm welcome to all children, parents and carers to our group. We encourage parents to take an active role in our committee-run pre-school, and in turn become part of our small rural village community.
Children in our care: Create, Explore, Imagine and Learn in a happy, safe and nurturing environment. They are encouraged to be individuals and develop their skills and knowledge based on their own learning characteristics.
We provide a broad range of educational opportunities and facilitate experiences that enrich each child's: social, emotional, physical, intellectual, cognitive and creative abilities.
We aim to support each child's uniqueness and individuality and provide a diverse, vibrant programme as they work towards common goals within the Early Years Foundation Stage.
We understand how important a child's first steps are in their academic journey and how this is the basis for all future learning. Our pre-school is a place where children are supported through planned and spontaneous play. We promote educational learning skills irrespective of gender, cultural background or disability.
We build on existing personal and social skills to help children become confident and responsible. Children in our pre-school are given a sense of belonging where they can build friendships and feel valued as an individual. We support them in learning respect, teamwork and equality.
We take children from the age of 2 years. Funding for 15 hours and 30 hours is available for 3 and 4 year olds and families on low income and/or other criteria may be eligible for 15 hours funding for children aged 2.
Our group believes in striving towards improvement and believe that this is represented by our reflective practice and parent involvement.
