About our Pre-school

Our staff are committed to working as a team and contribute to improving our setting to ensure it provides a safe, secure and stimulating environment for our children. Our team are dedicated to their own professional development and realise its importance for childrens' learning and development.

We work hard to bring routine to our children with opportunities to develop by providing activities and experiences every day that are planned, according to the individual child's interests by following the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Our practice incorporates positive opportunities for children that reflect diversity and address issues of race, culture, gender and disability offering equal opportunity to all.  We also work in partnership with outside agencies to enhance children's development.

Our Mission

At Ullesthorpe Pre-school we aim to be the centre of excellence for children and to be well respected within the community. It is our purpose to provide a positive learning environment with qualified and experienced staff that remains professional, experienced, kind and supportive to enable our children to develop successfully in their physical, emotional, social and educational needs.

We are committed to establishing strong relationships with parents/carers by creating a bond between home and pre-school to ensure effective continuity.  We seek to provide many ways for effective communication between the two, including regular updates through 1-1 meetings, newsletters and our notice board to share information on your child's achievement, experiences and progress.

 

Feedback from our parents/carers is important to us and from this continued support, we carry on improving our care and ensuring we continue to provide a happy and safe environment whilst encouraging confidence and independence along the way.
