Our educational programme and activities

Educational programmes and activities at Barlow Pre-schoolWe use the early years foundation stage guidance to ensure children make progress in their educational, social and emotional development.

We work towards desirable outcomes in the following areas;

  • Personal social and emotional development
  • Communication, language and literacy
  • Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy
  • Knowledge and understanding of the world
  • Physical development
  • Creative development

The everyday activities and topic work planned, provides a balanced programme and includes art and craft, number work, music, singing, movement, baking, science and technology, games, story time, reading, writing etc.

Your child will be allocated a Key worker. A Key worker is a member of staff who has special responsibility for your child. The Key worker will have responsibility for overseeing your child’s development, through observation, interaction and parent feedback.

We may wish to take your child out on a nature walk or a trip to a local farm. You will be asked for consent to take your child out of the premises. For these excursions we require adults to help with supervision, a list will be posted for volunteers.

We have our own well equipped outdoor play area which is used daily regardless of the weather, so please ensure you send your child with appropriate clothing for the weather. We also allow outdoor play in the summer months on the village green area and park, when the grass is dry and we have adequate adult supervision.
