Our children within the setting learn and develop through play based activities, focusing around their interests. We provide a balance of both child-initiated learning and adult-guided to enhance and develop children’s learning an development further. We follow the Early Year’s Statuary Framework and Development Matters using the check points to inform us of the progress the children are making. Our planning is based around the children’s interests from carrying out observations and from children expressing their views and interests. Each week we have a focus story and we enhance the children’s learning based around the story by providing activities and learning opportunities. Parent’s/Carers have a weekly email with an update on what their child has taken part in and enjoyed doing during their week at Pre-School and they have a home activity that relates to our focus story.
We have a Dance Teacher come in once a week to work with the children and she teaches them various techniques, dances and movements encouraging them to develop their listening skills, gross motor skills and involves them being in a large group.
