Parent Partnership is high profile and we like you to be really involved with your child's progress whilst they are at Horringer Pre-school, we gather as much information as possible on entry and utilise it well. We have a Home Learning Hub for all families to access. Each child has their own Key Person who will ensure that your child is comfortable, happy and secure at our preschool. An online E-Learning Journal is compiled for all children in the setting, which includes observations, photos and how we plan for your child’s interests and progress their learning and development in the seven areas of learning.
We work together with parents to help children if English is not their first language. On our enrollment forms, you will be asked to fill in information on your nationality, beliefs, culture and faith. All staff pride themselves on being positive role models helping to create an inclusive environment for all children and families. Children have the option to wear uniform with our squirrel logo on, helping to form a strong sense of belonging.
We have a strong settling in process tailored to each family. We provide strong lines of communication over the telephone, email and safe chats outside with masks and social distancing adhered to. Unfortunately, we are not able to invite parents in at the moment. Anyone wishing to view our preschool at the moment can access a garden visit where a member of staff will be happy to talk with you regarding what our preschool has to offer your family and the enrolment process.
Children enjoy a creative range of adult-led and child-initiated activities throughout the session, both indoors and out in our garden area. Our play areas are zoned, along with tabletop and floor activities along with a brand new sensory room overlooking our Copse. Play and learning is tailored to children's needs and current interests and we have high regard for the wellbeing of our families. Time is taken to focus on bonding and creating secure relationships to create a smooth journey into preschool after an unsettling and challenging six months living alongside Covid 19.
