Turvey Pre-School -TERM TIME ONLY
We are a small village pre-school offering a friendly, welcoming and caring environment to all children and their families. We have a small, experienced staff team all qualified to level 3. We have a maximum of 24 children per session (summer term) with appropriate adult ratio.
We offer high quality care and play based learning to support children’s individual development in the Early Years. We have an experienced SENDCO who works closely with children and their families as well as with the staff team to ensure on-going support for children’s individual needs during their time with us. Our activities include outdoor play, trips to the park, cooking, adult-led activities, physical play, creative and much more. We include seasonal and festive activities among these.
Everything we do relates to the EYFS framework, covering all seven learning areas. We plan activities on a weekly basis to reflect on each child’s interest and individual need. Plans may change through the week depending on children’s interests. Every child has a keyperson to ensure their needs are met and the keyperson builds a strong relationship with the child and family.
We have good links with Turvey Primary School and surrounding village schools to support children’s transition and we work especially closely with them for SEND children.
