Alderley Edge Pre-school


Home Visits

July 27, 2017
As part of our settling in process we visit lots of our new children and their families in their home environment the term before they start with us. We find this process to be extremely effective when helping our new children to settle into the pre school. We get the opportunity to speak with parents and interact with the child in a relaxed environment and begin to build positive relationships.
This term we have been out on home visits meeting lots of our new families ready to start with us in September! They have all been a great success and we hope you all found them really helpful and informative. We are looking forward to seeing all of our families again in September!

A short trip to the post box later and the designs were sent off for royal approval.

The Great Petrol Station Adventure

June 17, 2012

Several boys were using blocks and tracks to build a road system for their cars. Very wisely they all agreed they would need a petrol station to refuel their vehicles and tried to figure out where to put it.

It needs go here so my car get in.” One child suggested.

But my bus can’t get through there!”

this was followed by “an’ your cars blocking the track now!”

On hearing this debate, Mrs J suggested looking at how real petrol stations worked on the computer but the childre...
