Welcome to Little Learners
Little learners runs daily from 8.15-3.15pm.
From 8.15-9.15 we provide breakfast club for all the Early years children across school. This provision costs between £3- £5 a day and we provide the children with cereal/toast/ pastries and a drink.
During our main day session 9.15-3.15, we cater for children from their 2yrs upwards. We accept children who pay for sessions or who qualify for Think2/ Nef funding.
We use 2 rooms alongside a private outdoor space. We are able to currently cater for 24 children during each session at a child to staff ratio of 1:4 for our 2 year olds and 1:8 for our 3 year olds.
The staffing structure is as follows:
Pre school Manager- Mrs Harvey
Full time Practitioner – Miss Hagan
Practitioner- Mrs Hilditch.
Practitioner: Mrs Bennett
The children are welcomed every morning by staff into the main room. We access both rooms where necessary and also encourage free flow for the children to outdoors.
The rooms are arranged in a way which allows the children to access all 7 areas of learning throughout their play.
We like to focus on particular areas of learning on certain days each we week. We have a Messy day, a PE day, a Creative day, a Story day and a Music day. This is varied and is only for a fraction of the day, the children still have many opportunities for free play and their ideas still lead our activities.
Parents are valued as partners in your child’s learning and we actively use our DoJO system for 2 way messages, pictures, reminders and to celebrate achievements. Mrs Harvey is always available either via DoJo or telephone for any questions or queries you may have.
