The Avenue Pre-School believes every child deserves the best possible start in life, and support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age 5 have a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right. We consider good parenting, and high quality pre-school learning, together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up. All early years providers must follow The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which sets the standards for all Early Years providers.
The team at The Avenue Preschool are all fully qualified early years practitioners who are passionate about working with young children and always have the needs and best interests of children in mind, this ensures all children are supported to progress through the EYFS at a pace that suits their individual needs and ensures that through daily observations and accurate termly assessments any support needs are quickly identified. We have recently introduced online profiles (Tapestry) which gives parents and carers accessible information on your child as it happens, using an app.
Safe & Enjoyable
Our aim is to ensure all children enjoy their time in the nursery and all parents and carers are secure in the knowledge that their child is receiving the best quality care and education possible in a happy, relaxed and educationally challenging environment that supports your child’s individual development stage.
At The Avenue Preschool we regard all children as individuals, as such we strive to work closely with parents and carers to ensure we know as much about your child as possible. We are particularly keen to learn about their individual needs, likes and dislikes, personal characteristics and familiar routines which all assist us in supporting the children’s transition into the nursery and to enhance the quality of the professional relationships that develop between our children and our practitioners.
Special Educational Needs
We provide an inclusive environment in which all children, including those with special educational needs, are supported to reach their full potential. We designate two members of staff to be the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO). Our SENCO is: Shell.
All of our team hold an enhanced DBS check and regularly update their professional development, we all hold paediatric first aid certificates and attend safeguarding children training. Staff all complete ongoing training for teaching phonics/mathematics and literacy, which makes them not only very professional but as parents themselves have a true understanding what children and parents need.
These relationships support children’s self-confidence thus enabling them to build social relationships with other children in the setting and to develop throughout the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
Each child is allocated their own Key person who will make herself known to before your child starts. The Key person will help your child settle in and will record their development and special moments during their time with us. This means that you will always know who is keeping a special eye out for your child and with whom you can discuss their progress or any worries or concerns. All records on each child are available for parental viewing at any time.
