Before a child starts they will have a Home Visit where management and the child's key person will come to the child's home to fill in required paperwork, visit the child in their home environment and get to know the family in more detail ready to start their journey to starting preschool.
A session begins by being greeted at the gate by a member of management and key worker (or buddy). The children are then brought inside to wash their hands and self register by adding their name plate to our tree. The children have free access to the indoor and outdoor environment for the whole session. The setting is designed so that the children have free access to all resources to enable them to lead their own play. The staff support children in their learning by role modelling, offering cues to extend their learning and encourage children to take risks, be curious and have a go.
Children bring in a packed lunch from home. the children are sat at tables with a member of staff to hand to help and encourage independent skills.
