A Typical day at St Paul's Pre-School
We have a great selection of activities, available to all children, for both inside and outside play:
Puzzles and games
Montessori number and letter activities
Expresive art and craft activities
Montessori mark making and drawing
Eco-friendly small world play
Scooters and cars
We believe that every child is unique, we therefore tailor each activity to suit that particular child. Children are encouraged to make choices about which activities and resources they wish to engage.
The EYFS specifies requirements for learning and development and for safeguarding children and promoting their welfare.
There are seven areas of learning and development, all areas are important and inter-connected.
Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive, we call these the Prime Areas and they are as follows:
Communication and language
Personal, social and emotional development
St Paul’s also supports children in four specific areas which are as follows:
Understanding the world, and
Expressive arts and design
At St Paul’s we take into consideration the individual needs of each child, their interests and stage of development. We use this information to plan a challenging and enjoyable experience for the child covering all areas of learning and development. We use planned purposeful play through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activities.
Play is essential for a child development, building their confidence as they learn.
