Ladybirds Preschool Mission Statement
Ladybirds Preschool works to provide a safe, caring and stimulating environment where children learn through play, both in and out of doors.
The curriculum, planning and timetable are planned, using the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ and some aspects of ‘High Scope’ educational approach to learning.
As a team we are committed to an active learning environment so that children are able to follow their interests. We provide this through:
A dedicated key person is allocated as soon as a child is enrolled in preschool. The key person develops bonds with parents and children and works in partnership to provide activities, supporting each childs age and stage of development and onward learning.
Activities and resources are provided that are tailored to the interests and needs of each child.
Our settling arrangements include home visits, visits into preschool, stay and play sessions and an introduction to Tapestry (online learning system) so we all get to know each other to support children to feel comfortable and settle happily as soon as they start.
We invite parents and carers to termly consultations with the key person to discuss observations that they would have seen on Tapestry. Assessment of current learning, next development steps and how best for them to support their child at home. We also arrange regular events, such as
- books for breakfast / tales for tea
- visits from librarian
- creature and animal experiences
- annual preschool outing
- parties and trips to soft play centres
AND MUCH, MUCH MORE !!!!!!!!
