Where we are

We are situated in the Community Hall of Sandhills Community Primary school. We are a registered Charity and managed by a volunteer committee of parents and carers. We have a maximum of 26 children attending in any one session. The Pre-School follows the Early Years Foundation Stages (EYFS), you will have been given a copy of the EYFS for parents which explains more. Children have free flow between inside and outside and are offered a balance of interesting and fun play based activities and experiences over the seven areas of learning.

As well as the day to day activities on offer children will have opportunities to take part in:

  • cooking and gardening activities
  • take short trips to the local shop, post box and park
  • help choose books from the mobile library

Equal opportunities and inclusion

We offer a very warm welcome to all children and their families regardless of their class, culture, religion or disability. We aim to ensure individual requirements are met and support is given where needed, through our trained staff, and outside agencies where required.

Behaviour

We practice a promoting positive behaviour approach. If a child displays persistently challenging behaviour, we will notify parents/carers of this and will work closely with them to offer a consistent approach to dealing with the behaviour.
