Noah's Ark Pre-School

Pre-School Playgroup

We support children by using the EYFS framework. Our planning is based around your child’s individual development and interests. We have a key person system in place and offer an open morning before your child starts.  We have 3 main areas consisting of a garden area, a room for quieter play and a large room for messy play.  We have a free flow environment with access to the outside for most of the session, including a rolling snack. We use Tapestry, an online learning journey to record your child's progress and development, which allows you access to your child's learning while at home. We have strong parent partnership and work closely with all our families.
