Little Skippers, our foundation stage unit is a fully integrated unit. This means that the children can move freely between our exceptionally well resourced rooms, shared creative area, café and outdoor play area making choices and learning to regulate their responses and behaviour. We provide a safe, secure and supervised unit supported by a large team of qualified and experienced early years educators including three early years trained teachers.
The unit enables children and parents to transfer from early years provision into our reception rooms seamlessly. Children are encouraged to take part in groups, explore ideas, and explain their thinking while developing increasing levels of confidence and independence.
We have developed a reading programme to support parents reading and enjoying stories and rhymes at home by taking part in fun activities.
Teddy Words and Sunshine Sounds
We ensure that our reception children are keeping a head with reading and writing by practising key sounds and words they see regularly at home and school.
Together families take part in practical workshops alongside qualified early years educators, developing skills that ensure that the relationships between you and your child are healthy, confident and loving. There is opportunity for all parents to share ideas and strategies that are successful while working with your child.
