Education is key as our children join our 'preschool' group, and we prepare our older children so they are ready for school.
Our areas for Communication and Language, Literacy, Mathematics and Understanding of the World are well equipped with resources and tools to focus on that particular area of learning. While the EYFS guidelines support and enable practitioners to provide opportunities for children to plan, learn and succeed in a cohesive way whilst tailoring to children's individual learning and development needs.
As leaving Nursery nears, we start to equip children with the practices that will continue at school. We practice our phonics and letters, and some children are able to recognize their letters and write their own name. Children are able to choose books from our library, and we read these together, talking about the pages and characters, what might happen next, and how the children feel about the story. Children take a book to share at home.
We support children in using a range of ICT materials to ensure a balance of modern tools and traditional methods.
