We aim to nurture each child’s uniqueness and individuality as they work towards common goals within the Early Years Foundation Stage.

We are committed to providing a high level of care and education for all our children and are constantly looking at and implementing ways to move the setting forward.

We aim to be the number one choice for parents in the Fulford area.

Your Children

We work in partnership with you and your child to ensure their development is as exciting, varied and progressive as possible. Each child is unique and requires individual care as they develop skills and knowledge, following the path of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). 

Children who begin their education in a learning environment that is vibrant, purposeful, challenging and supportive stand the best chance of developing into confident and successful learners (EYFS 2007). Effective learning environments are created over time, as Pre School staff, Key person, and parents/carers work together, thinking and talking about children’s learning and planning how to promote it.

Key Workers

Each child is allocated a Key Person who takes responsibility for your child’s development and is your main point of contact. The Key Person provides you with an insight into the day to day experiences of your child, by collecting different pieces of creative work, photographs and observations. This information is gathered into an individual Personal Book which is updated regularly, and shared with you and your child. 

Learning Journey

All children at the Pre School have a learning journey book which observes their experiences. Although it is mainly kept at Pre school it does belongs to the Parents/carers and the child. Over time it will tell a story about a child – their learning, friends and the activities that they enjoy.
Staff watch and notice each child at play, helping us to understand and support their individual well-being and development

Your children’s education and welfare are our main priorities
