for little people age 3 – 5 years
At Bunting pre-school we are dedicated to developing the potential of every child, offering them an abundance of fun learning activities starting from their natural interests, enthusiasm and curiosity. We are committed to delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage, with dedicated key workers to support each child and their family and play a vital role in assessing their needs and preparing them for their transition to school. Children are able to self select resources and activities, and are also encouraged to begin to look after their own belongings, and to be independent in toileting, hand washing and dressing.
We offer 3 year funded places up to 15 hours, please find more information: www.childcarechoices.gov.uk
Areas are set up so that the children can access many different areas including a cosy corner for reflection or for choosing their own books. A substantial role play area reflecting children’s changing interests e.g. an aeroplane to a hairdressers and enables children to begin to act out roles that they see in the world around them. There are a variety of resources for construction, and small world to encourage imaginative play. The children have access to an outdoor area that includes both soft safety surface and grass. They also have opportunity to extend their knowledge of the world around them, through adventures in our ‘nature classroom’. These areas are appropriately resourced to reflect the skills that the children are developing inside, but often on a larger or messier scale e.g. mark making through painting with water or mud, large scale construction with cardboard tubes and crates. The unique location affords the children lots of space to play, with a large, safe outdoor area with all-weather classroom giving access to fresh air and exercise all year round.
