"Schools who do offer nursery provision are seeing some big benefits. Children's behaviour and attainment improves, schools get to know children and their parents earlier on, offering them the tailored support they need, sooner."
Sam Gyimah, Childcare Minister
The children at Saplings
At Saplings Pre-school, we provide a wide range of resources to allow children to experience huge amounts of learning. The staff team ensure we provide the knowledge and skills that offer the right foundation for good future progress through school and life. We believe that self esteem and confidence are the best predictors of future success and we aim to boost children’s learning development in many ways. Saplings staff plan, purposeful play through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activity. We will look at children's interests as well as next steps of learning when thinking about what resources to provide for your children.
Play is essential for children’s learning development, building confidence and learning to explore, to think about problems, and relate to others. We are a friendly team and love to involve parents as much as possible. We increase children’s learning frequently, by going on school trips and inviting people from different services in to the setting, such as police and fire brigade services. We also ensure that we have Music, P.E and Forest Play specialists who come to the setting every week.
Children learn by leading their own play, and by taking part in play which is guided by us. If you would like to find out more about our unique setting, please come and visit us. We welcome visits from parents as often as possible.
