Our Policies

We strongly support all the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, based on the research that the best way for children to learn is through play.  

We also ensure that our Pre-School is safe, clean, and inclusive, for staff, parents and children.

  • “Leadership and management are excellent. The trustees and managers are inspirational and work tirelessly to continually make improvements to benefit all children. Self-evaluation is used effectively to develop action plans and incorporates ideas from all involved in the Pre-School.
  • The manager is skilled in her analysis of children’s progress and ensures support is accessed swiftly when children are in need.  
  • Staff are highly skilled at helping children to learn to behave appropriately. They are calm and sensitive in their approach and demonstrate a depth of understanding that is second to none.  
  • Staff know how to extend children’s learning as they play and every interaction is purposeful and well considered. Children readily invite staff to join in with their activities and thoroughly enjoy the time spent playing and learning together.  
  • Children’s literacy skills are fostered exceptionally well.  
  • Parents involvement is truly valued from the start and staff readily share ideas to help support children’s learning at home.”
