MILNROW PRE-SCHOOL PLAYGROUP SETTING

We cover the seven areas of learning indoors and outside. The children start the session on the carpet joining in rhythm and rhyme time. Then we go into our key groups where the children spend 15 minutes with their key person and their key group peers playing a game or taking part in an activity.

Now it’s time for free play and the children choose what they do and where they go, we have free-flow play indoors and outdoors and the staff are covering areas and delivering planned adult led activities. 

We have a rolling snack table throughout the session where the children choose to go and serve themselves a healthy snack and drink when they want to.

Tidy up time near the end of the session. The older children help while the younger ones play outside.

Then caterpillar corner time for the 2/3 year olds with singing, dancing, puppets and sometimes stories. The butterflies go and do funky finger activities, letters and sounds and story time in small groups, rotating around the three activities.

Home time or lunchtime for the children that stay and then we repeat the morning activities for the afternoon session.

SUMMARY OF KEY FINDINGS FOR PARENTS

Ofsted say:- This provision is good. The quality of teaching is consistently strong. The well-qualified staff use accurate assessments to identify children's next steps in learning. They provide a balance of both activities led by adults and times for children to freely choose their play. Children gain the skills and attitudes needed for their next steps in learning and school.

The key-person system is well established and effective. Children develop close relationships with the caring and sensitive staff. This supports children to develop high levels of confidence and a strong sense of emotional security.
