Little Stars Pre-School

Little Stars Pre-School

Our main objective is to ensure that the children have fun, enjoy their time with us and learn in a calm, relaxed and natural way. We endeavor to provide an educationally stimulating environment in which the children feel calm, valued and able to progress at their own speed. We aim to be approachable, open to Parents/ Carers and their families, knowledgeable and helpful wherever we can.

Our aim is to encourage all aspects of each child’s development, creating a balance between freedom and discipline, creativity and control.

We strive to achieve this with the following objectives:
• To encourage a family atmosphere, teaching children to have respect for each other, thereby learning to relate to one another and building an attitude of caring and sharing.
• To encourage learning through play by providing games and activities which develop each child’s skills and self-awareness.
• To provide materials and challenges aimed at encouraging excitement and motivation for learning.

Our Preschool curriculum is an informal course of learning, working within the Early Years Foundation Stage. The Early Years Foundation Stage is set out in a document published by the DfES & is the framework to ensure that every child has the best possible start in life, & support to fill their potential. The frame work divides children’s learning into 7 areas. Combined together, the seven areas of learning provide opportunities to address important aspects of children’s spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development.

The four Themes for the EYFS express important Principles underpinning effective practice in the care, development and learning of young children. These are evident in all we are & do at Little Stars.

 To use language and communicate with other children and adults

All of these skills are vital to every child. They are the tools that aid all future development, both academically and socially.
