Quality Pre-School Group in Lewisham

 

Pre-School Group - For 3 Years to 5 Years

By the age of 3 years children have developed good spoken language skills and use these to think about what they are doing as they play, whilst asking many questions about what they are doing or seeing.

Reasoning Approach To Learning

With this group we take a Reasoning Approach which helps our 3 to 5 year olds find out information and solutions to problems as they play in our family friendly facilities.

 

We believe that children learn best through playing and all of our topics and activities take into account your child’s ideas to aid the enjoyment of learning new skills. This gradual increase throughout the years helps your child to build strong relationships by learning consideration and enhancing their confidence and self-esteem.

Early Years Foundation Stage

The children cover a wide range of activities in the Early Years Foundation stage and the six areas of areas of learning that will help to prepare them for school.

 

The children are encouraged to learn and develop an understanding and recognition of:

 

Numbers

Shapes

Letters

Basic Pencil Control Skills

 

Through carefully planned topics and activities children learn about the general world around them.

Pre-School Preparation

At pre-school we encourage your child to be independent, confident and have an awareness of theirs and other needs. Children are encouraged to sit and play at the table in preparation for the reception class routine.

 

Our pre-school classes are supervised by our highly trained, specialist nursery nurses. Your child is assured of the utmost care and attention, with each aspect of their development catered for.

 

We plan all activities around the needs of each individual child, observing their development and devising unique ‘next steps' for every child, which are designed to help them grow and progress at their own pace.

 

By the time your child reaches school age, they will have developed a deep love of learning that will help them to settle at school. This is continually encouraged with our pre-school children by ensuring that we incorporate new and exciting aspects into each day, to keep learning fun and thought provoking.

Learning Profiles

Your child’s key worker will create a learning profile, unique to them, in which we record their strengths and any areas of need during their time with us, helping you to understand exactly what they are learning and why. This is  summarised to supply a detailed report about your child’s continued development and we also share this report with their new school to help with the transition.
