We are delighted you have chosen St. Gabriel’s Pre-school for your child. We know you want the best early years education available and we are confident we can offer this to you. We are a friendly Pre-school where each child is treated as an individual and will be learning in a safe, secure, caring and stimulating purpose-built school environment.
We provide Pre-school education for children from the age of 3 years to 4 years 11 months.
The children will be encouraged to gain confidence and become independent ready for the next stage of their education.
Each child is allocated a member of staff who will become their key person and will be responsible for their overall development and learning whilst in Pre-school.
The idea of a key person is for the child to know that one adult is taking special care of them and that this person goes on to develop a close and genuine bond with them. They also help families engage with more specialist support if appropriate.
Our planning will involve all the practitioners in the setting working together to make the children’s learning effective, varied, and progressive, based on what children already know and can do. It will recognise children’s different interest and needs with a range of opportunities for children to learn both indoors and outdoors.
We invite you to be a part of our Pre-school and would welcome your suggestions/views on the information we currently offer to our parents.
On behalf of the Pre-school Team
