Our Early Years Environment
Our Early Years environment is a safe, caring and nurturing environment that encompasses an indoor and outdoor classroom. The children's learning is organised into 7 areas of learning and development.
Children learn through carefully planned activities both indoors and outdoors, sometimes in a guided group with an adult and sometimes through self-chosen play and interaction. Children are encouraged to become independent learners, making decisions for themselves and cooperating with others.
Assessment plays an integral role in helping teachers to recognise children's needs and monitor their progress.
Is your child school ready?
Starting school is a very exciting time for families and we understand that it can be a daunting time too. With a little preparation and encouragement, most children will settle in easily at school, ready to listen, discover and have lots of fun learning!
'Pacey' has developed a collection of wonderful resources to help families prepare their children for school. The information guides below include lots of useful top tips about how you can support your child to be ‘school ready!’
