At present the older children attend in the morning session (i.e. the year before
they start school) and the younger children in the afternoon. A more formal timetable
is followed in the mornings but although this is intended to give structure to
our morning, it is very flexible.
- Individual care and attention with a high ratio of adults to children.
- Fun and friendship with other children and adults.
When you bring and collect your child, you are very welcome to go into all the
rooms at the playgroup and talk to the staff regarding your child. The children's
work is displayed on the walls mainly in the Big Room and will depict the current
theme and scheme of work, i.e. colour, shape, season, etc.
||We have a colour corner and nature table in the big room.
Children are encouraged to bring items for both as they come across them
Children can be encouraged to participate and show items that they have
collected to the other children and enjoy telling the group about their
Whether it is a pebble from their walk on the beach or a household object for
the colour theme.
||As well as the enjoyment of showing their object the
children are increasing theirs and the other children's knowledge, promoting
language skills, self-confidence and building their self-esteem.
The children will learn to become more observant and look for specific
items (unbreakable/non-precious) and remember instructions whilst learning
about their world is fun.
The progress of children is assessed by observation and recorded every term. A
written report is given to parents of the children who are leaving at the end
of Summer Term. The Supervisor is happy to discuss each child's progress with
parents/carers at any time.
