Yellow Room - Pre-School Age
The Yellow Room is the pre-school room and caters for 22 children and is located on the ground floor at the rear of the property with direct access to the outdoors.
We operate a self-registration system. This involves the child looking at a selection of names to find their own name supported by the practitioners if necessary. Your child can then place their name onto the self registration tree.
A rich and varied environment supports children’s learning and development. It gives them the confidence to explore and learn in secure and safe, yet challenging, indoor and outdoor spaces.
Each child will have the opportunity to be the leader, choosing our snack, story, song etc. for the session.
Children are provided with the opportunity to join familiar key people for a ‘rolling snack’ if they wish, or continue in their play activity either indoors or outdoors.
Alongside the continuous provision we have focused/adult led activities. During these times we will look at achieving a specific learning objective and the child’s next steps in learning through creating a particular activity or experience. As part of these activities, we bake for birthdays and other special occasions.
We will be introducing your child to Numeracy and Literacy through various activities taken from the latest publications and training guides. The activities are structured to be educational and above all fun. These activities will take place in the outdoor curriculum as well as indoors.
We will be using ‘Jolly Phonics’ which is a leading scheme for teaching literacy skills and is consistent with the seven areas of learning and development. Jolly Phonics has also been adopted by many schools, therefore giving your child continuity.
The children have direct access to a self contained toilet area.
