New  Resources!

This term we have put together a provision improvement plan of each of the areas within our pre school, we have put this together with the help of our children! They have shared 'wish lists' 'interests' 'favourite areas/resources', following on from this we have chosen some new resources for our pre school! The children have loved being a part of this process and have taken lots of pride in helping to put together and explore with our new resources! Well done Pre School! 

In the Moment Planning

Over the Autumn term we have been implementing a new way of planning which is known as ‘In the Moment’. This has been carefully researched and changes have been made to our paper work and also the indoor/outdoor environments. This way of planning will help to ensure that our setting is child focused and supports your child’s individual interests, ways of learning and their confidence to build on their own development through play. For more information please see our 'Our Provision' tab above.
