Our Ethos - Explore!

  • We explore the world around us. We have a special focus on the outdoors, enhanced by our Forest schools activities. We are very lucky to have a huge outdoor area with its very own woodlands all enclosed for safety, but great for young explorers.

 

Create –

 

We inspire creative and independent thinking, through our open-ended play activities, and by celebrating and listening to our children's ideas. We do 'in the moment' planning following the children’s lead creating an emotionally secure environment.

 

Discover-

  • We give children opportunities to follow their fascinations and discover their capabilities by planning our learning journey with them.
  • We achieve our aims by;
    • Creating an environment of fun and friendship for everyone, adults and children alike. We use the phrase, 'Home from Home' a lot, as that's how we want our pre-school to feel.
    • Celebrating the unique characters of our children and embracing their different needs.

 

  • Offering a wide range of opportunities for the children to develop their gross and fine physical skills.
  • Providing a secure and stimulating environment so that all children have the confidence to develop and practice their language skills.
  • Providing help and advice, offering community links through sure start and school services for all our families in Pre-school.
