We provide the children with a broad and rich language experience using story, rhyme, drama and song to inspire the children’s imagination and interests.
The children are encouraged to use language for thinking, by adults asking open ended questions, allowing children to explore sound with different and unusual objects and going on listening walks.
We have adult led music sessions which encourage the children to pick out sounds with the instruments and to play loudly and softly.
By playing a variety of games with the children their listening skills are developed well and they become much more able to match and pick out sounds. This all helps the children to be able to develop their ability to tune into speech sounds and by segmenting words into their component sounds.
We provide 15 hours free childcare for all 3 to 4 year olds also 30 hours for those qualifying. We also provide 15 hours free childcare for qualifying 2 year olds. Term time only and between 8.30am and 4.30pm
Our setting provides all-inclusive care and we cater for children with additional needs .
We work closely with all parents, children who have additional needs such as dietary, learning difficulties, disabilities or come from minority groups. We seek advice from Development Officers or Special Education Needs Coordinator (SENCO) or other specialist services.
All children are valued within this setting. The children without additional needs develop a unique understanding and empathy with their peers, who may at times need additional support.
