Working to build the
foundations for amazing
futures for little ones.
At Ditton Church Pre School we follow the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) curriculum. Children learn through play and we are guided by their current interests to inform our planning. After their initial starting points/age 2 check, we assess children's progress three times a year using the non statutory guidance 'Birth to Five Matters'
Our experienced staff team plan fun activities which encourage children to widen their knowledge in all areas of learning in a way that suits their individual stage of development and interests.
Throughout the year we incorporate a range of activities which teach the children how tio keep themselves safe: All About Me/body awareness, Road Safety and Stranger Danger and online safety. These are taught in an age appropriate way using songs, stories and discussion and by inviting members of the wider community such as our local lollipop lady and the Community Warden.
The links below show some ‘learning pyramids’ we have put together to demonstrate some examples of how children develop skills over their time with us and how we plan activities to support this.
We are full for the current academic year but have a waiting list should a space become available. We also keep waiting lists for the following two years.. Please email a completed Registration form or phone 07845921621
