Learning & Development
Play is central to children's learning and development. We at Lickey End Preschool believe play is the vehicle by which children can make sense of the world and extend their knowledge and understanding. All children are unique and their dispositions, patterns of play, knowledge, skills and attitude will vary.
We respect and value each child, observing interests and planning accordingly so that we provide a safe, stimulating, enabling environment where the child feels secure, happy and are able to learn and develop whilst forming positive relations with their adults and peers.
We plan for individual children, as this will enable them to reach their next steps and ensure development.
We offer a wide range of toys, resources and equipment to ensure your child/ren's interests are catered for. The children will have access to indoor/outdoor activities throughout the day. We ask that spare clothes are sent in with the children as some of our activities can get extremely messy, with gloop, shaving foam, glitter, gelli goo and much more.
Each child will be appointed a Key Worker when they first begin at preschool. It is the Key Workers responsibility to plan for your child and ensure their next steps are being completed. The Key Worker will communicate with parents/carers to ensure we are providing quality childcare.
