Laugh and Learn Pre-School Heene
122 Heene Community Centre
The Pre-School operates from two spacious classrooms within a beautiful flint faced building. 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 "goodbye".
We use unique equipment that 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.
Outside in the walled garden the children enjoy playing games with their friends, riding tricycles, searching for minibeasts under the trees and shrubs and creating constructions using a variety of building materials.
Our Beach School can provide an original outlook on a child`s creative development; they can build and create with the pebbles and wet sand, using tools such as spades and driftwood; mark-making in the sand, taking rubbings of the textures of the rocks and wood and their communication and language will benefit by the encouragement to describe their experiences.
