About Slinfold Pre-School
We believe that children start to learn about the world from the moment they are born. The care and education we offer helps children to continue to do this by providing fun and interesting activities that are appropriate for each child’s age and stage development.
All children are individuals and this is reflected in our child centred approach to play and learning. We promote children’s learning in a safe, fun and stimulating environment that is centred around their individual needs and requirements.
In our provision we support the five outcomes of ‘Every Child Matters’ principles of the Foundation Stage:
Children’s learning experiences are practical play based opportunities geared to support and build upon children’s individual interests and strengths in line with the Foundation Stage Curriculum.
Children can be admitted to the Pre-School from the age of 2 years 3 months depending on readiness of the individual child and availability of spaces.
To organize children’s learning to promote independence, perseverance, self discipline and a lifetime love of learning.
To create a stimulating learning environment where everyone has the opportunity to maximize his/her full learning potential.
To provide a welcoming environment where everyone is valued, promoting self-esteem and mutual respect.
To plan and provide a broad curriculum based on meaningful and rich learning experiences that meet the needs of each individual child.
To encourage the involvement of parents in their child’s learning.
To ensure there are equal opportunities for all regardless of race, gender, disability or social background.
The Pre-School is part of Slinfold Primary School and situated in a purpose-built classroom at the centre of the school site. Pre-School children also make use of school facilities and take part in many whole school events.
We are open 5 days a week 8.30am - 3pm term time only.
