Pre-School Heene Prospectus
At Laugh and Learn Pre-school Heene we believe that children deserve the best chance to explore the world and develop skills in a well-planned environment. Our setting encourages children to become independent, confident little people well able to educate themselves for whatever lifestyle they may choose. Each child has the opportunity to develop at their own pace supported by experienced and friendly staff.
By building up good trusting relationships with parents and carers our settling in programme supports both the child and the adult in their first experiences of having to say ‘good bye’. Children have access to two classrooms and a garden within a beautiful flint faced building providing a secure place to enjoy playing games with their friends, riding tricycles, searching for mini beasts under the trees and shrubs and creating constructions using a variety of building materials.
The equipment we use appeals to all five senses and helps the children to learn about number, language and the world around them in a positive and interesting way. Shared songs, rhymes and stories encourage a sense of belonging within the group.
The introduction of a Beach School to Laugh and Learn Pre-school Heene commenced in the Summer Term of 2012. A growing number of Early Years settings are now visiting local beaches with fantastic feedback and great success. Each group of our children will visit the beach one day a week over a period of time during the summer term with staff (and hopefully some willing parents and carers!) to enjoy a variety of experiences, exploring the environment and encountering all kinds of weather. The children will benefit immensely from these regular visits; Children having more freedom to explore and investigate the natural materials and world around them, Building relationships and friendships with others and feeling part of a group, Being able to express themselves more freely through being outside in the open air.
The Pre-school staff are committed in expanding your child’s knowledge across all areas of their development providing a positive and enriching experience for them all.
