Curriculum

"Schools who 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 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.

Play is essential for children’s learning development, building confidence and learning to explore, to think about problems, and relate to others. Saplings staff plan purposeful play opportunities through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activity. We look at children's interests as well as next steps of learning when considering what resources to provide for your children. 

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.

We are a friendly team and love to involve parents as much as possible. 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.

WE LIKE TO LEARN IN A VERY PRACTICAL WAY. USUALLY, WE HAVE SO MUCH FUN, WE DON'T EVEN REALISE WE ARE DEVELOPING OUR KEY SKILLS!
