At St Patrick’s Church of England Preschool we follow the EYFS Development Matters; Birth to Five. The three characteristics of effective teaching and learning that underpin our ethos are:
Every child’s time here is a stimulating, exciting and happy learning experience. In a caring and accepting environment, your child will be able to build upon the social, emotional and intellectual foundation which you have started.
Your child will be able to experiment with new activities, explore the creative possibilities of art and craft, the exhilaration of adventurous play, develop ideas and communicate them freely. They will have the opportunity to develop and practice the social skills that are so important for a happy and satisfying life. Your child will learn to respect the rights of others, and the value of cooperation and sharing with others.
We will prepare your child for school, i.e. use of facilities such as the Hall, school playground, vegetable garden and library.
