All About Us!
It is with great pleasure that we welcome you and your child/ren to Newton Park Preschool. We are very excited to have you join us!
We will provide your child with the building blocks to build their future. We believe that every child is unique and will grow at his or her own pace. Our staff spend time nurturing children's strengths and encouraging them to reach new heights.
Our setting follows Anna Ephgrave's 'IN THE MOMENT PLANNING', the idea with this is that we capture the interests of the child or children in the present moment. Each term your child will become a focus child and we will focus on your child for a period of time, concentrating on their learning and development, following their interests and getting those next steps in that moment. A child's learning is never limited and one learning experience can produce many outcomes from multiple focus areas.
We use an online system called Baby's days to document your child's learning journey, here you will find pictures of your child and the day to day activities they are actively participating in, toilet/nappy changing routine, daily diaries for our 2 year olds, you can also communicate with your child's keyworker, and view our policies and procedures, as well as being able to upload your own photos from your child's homelife.
There are 8 members of staff within the setting, so your child will always be welcomed by a familiar face. There will always be someone available to discuss any matters and please feel free to have a chat with us if you have any concerns.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to track your child's learning and development, it sets the standard that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children's 'school readiness' and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.
We are very excited to support your child in their development and learning in the year ahead, and we look forward in sharing your child's journey with you!
