Teamwork, wrapping presents. Using serving tongues to pick up soft Pom pins and place them on to a pattern. Peeling masking tape of a table top. We have been working on fine motor and manipulative skills today along with keeping hands steady to build.

We watched 3 aeroplanes fly over preschool today, this is a picture of one of them. Look at the engines on the wings!!! and look at the people in the plane.   










The EYFS has been updated for September 2014. We will let you know what has changed.


We offer a wide range of activities, which we deliver through a structured timetable which covers the areas of learning specified by the Department of Education.  The Department stipulates that there are seven areas of learning and development that must shape educational programmes in early years settings. All seven areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected.

The Department says there are three areas which are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive. These three prime areas, which we support, are:
• communication and language
• physical development
• personal, social and emotional development.
We also support children in four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. The specific areas are:
• literacy
• mathematics
• understanding the world
• expressive arts and design.

Pre-school Learning Alliance

We are a member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance.

The strongest foundation for children and families.

As a parent you are your child’s first and most important educator. Research shows that parental support for children’s learning has a direct impact on how well they do, both in early years settings and also later on in life, and it is widely recognised that the learning that takes place in childcare settings builds upon vital home experiences with parents.

Information and advice

The Alliance actively promotes and supports parental involvement in all our work. We offer impartial information and advice to help you find out more about care and education for young children, so you can make an informed decision about the childcare that is right for your child. We also support parents and children by offering affordable childcare provisiondiscounted books and resourcesfamily learning programmes and adult training.
