Our Aim

At Little Oaks Pre- School, we believe that play is educationally powerful. The staff plan both individually and jointly on the basic principles of play. They use their knowledge of the curriculum and of the children’s developmental stages to combine adult directed and child initiated activities. The planning of the children’s learning is linked to the EYFS Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.

We aim to…

  • Provide for the intellectual, emotional, social and physical needs of the child.
  • Welcome all children into a fun, stimulating and caring environment.
  • Treat each child as an individual.
  • Offer children the opportunity to participate in a variety of experiences that will enhance their skills and knowledge.
  • Encourage children to be independent in their thinking and learning.
  • Learn through play and first hand experiences.
  • Have access to an enjoyable curriculum.
  • Encourage children to develop a sense of kindness, pride and respect for themselves and others.
  • Develop confidence and enthusiasm to learn.
  • Access different themes and topics throughout their pre-school life.
  • Give all children an equal opportunity to learn.
  • Promote children’s social, intellectual and physical development through play and structured activities, preparing them for a smooth transition from pre-school to school.
  • Honour parent’s trust that we will nurture their child and give them quality care.
  • Work as partners with parents/carers and offer flexibility that allows each child’s individual needs to be met.
  • Make parents/carers feel welcome and provide an atmosphere where both children and adults feel happy and comfortable.
