Kids R Us Pre-School
What We Offer
We follow the EYFS Framework for early years and all children will be given a key worker and parents will be fully informed of their child’s development.
We will have a variety of different activities and resources on offer for the children to stimulate and engage them both indoors and outdoors, it will be free- flow setting. Staff will plan their sessions, days and weeks with children based on the EYFS themes and principles. Staff will use observations and a planning structure of their key children to help notice areas for next steps for each of their key children to ensure they have high outcomes. We will use ‘tapestry’ to communicate what children are doing.
There will always be activities on offer that always support each area of learning. The organised activities will support the development of each child and an enthusiasm to try new things and challenge themselves.
We follow a child centred approach and children are free to choose activities and resources as they wish. We provide activities for all types of play experiences and types. There will always be a selection of activities and resources available, including dressing up, home corner, craft, board games, construction, physical play, cookery, and reading.
Significant Experience of Working With Children
We value our staff, their hard work and commitment to their roles. We want them to feel valued, motivated and listened too. We are proud to have a low staff turnover, we feel listening to staff and giving them opportunity for future progression and development is important. Staff will be part of continuous professional development and put on training courses where they need to be updated or learn extra skills. We have yearly in-house training where all staff participate in company procedures on safeguarding, first-aid, behaviour management, EYFS, company values, parent communication, equalities and special educational needs and food hygiene. We also use an online platform ‘flik training’, all staff are to complete the comprehensive section of online courses every two years.
