Curriculum

The children engage in a wide variety of activities daily and support is given where necessary for each child to reach new goals. The children are able to take part in fun filled days such as fancy dress, themed days and charity fundraisers which enable them to have a wider understanding of the world in which they live. The activities that we complete throughout the week cover all seven areas of learning which are set out as follows:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Communication and language
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Knowledge and understanding of the world
  • Physical development
  • Expressive Arts and Design

The planning for the children is created by observation and assessment of what the children initiate themselves through their own individual play and extended so as to fulfil their needs which ensures that all children feel included, safe and valued, and in doing so the children excel and learn.

Parents will be notified each term of our intentions on the topics we will be working on. Additional reminder letters will be sent out each term. We hope this will enable you to feel fully involved in your child's activities and also encourage them by talking about them in your home.

We hope to maintain close contact between preschool and home by use of effective communication - this means you will be kept fully informed at all times about forthcoming events such as parties, trips, fund-raising etc. Please get into the habit of checking our notice board each time you come to the preschool and also keep an eye on our News page - sometimes nothing new appears for ages, and then there is loads of news at the same time.

Finally, Little Stars aims to provide the best possible service with the resources available. Should you have any ideas of changes that we could make or any extra activities which your child would enjoy then please feel free to inform us of them. If you wish to discuss any issues regarding the service which we provide, please feel free to talk to the manager Claire Porter
