Our Aims: To recognise the guidelines of the school curriculum and assessment authority and to offer educational provisions that support the early years learning goals through play where possible.

Staff: All of our staff are qualified to the equivalent of NVQ3 and have completed first aid training. They also undertake further courses throughout the year. We have a named SENCO and SENCO assistant and all of our staff are up-to-date with safeguarding children.

This is a committee run Pre-school. We run a lunch and learning session on a Wednesday for funded children aged 3–5 years. We run another lunch club after the session. This is based on more focused activities in preparation for school.

Fundraising buys new toys

May 10, 2017

Papplewick Pre-School is a registered charity that is committee run. During the year the Pre-School staff and the Committee organise five key fundraisers to help raise much needed funds which go towards new equipment and toys all of which benefit the children who attend Pre-School.

Last year saw a total of six fundraisers, with the addition of Pre-Schools 40th Anniversary celebrations, boosting the fundraising success.

We are always very grateful that our fundraising events are so well attended and supported by the parents, grandparents and extended family members of our pre-schoolers. We thank everyone who attended, helped out and donated toys or raffle prizes. The fundraisers not only play an important role in the successful running of Pre-School, but are also lots of fun for the children on the day.

This term we have purchased lots of new toys and resources for the children thanks to the profits made at the fundraising events.

We have some lovely additions to the Small World play toys which include a new wooden spaceship with lots of interactive accessories, a full hospital set and a fire station set – which has proved very popular with the boys! These will make a fantastic contribution when we cover our ‘People Who Help Us’ topic later in the year.

We have purchased some beautiful new wooden puzzles also based around the ‘People Who Help Us’ theme, along with some multicultural puppets which can be tailored around emotions, helping the children to recognise and understand their own, as well as others’ feelings and emotions.

Last year we also piloted ‘one to one’ sessions with some of the children. These sessions proved very beneficial so have been extended and are now accessed by all of the children. The sessions provide one to one focused learning time together with small group circle time which focuses on building confidence and communication skills. The fundraising events have enabled us to buy specific resources to for these one to one sessions. For example, the aforementioned multicultural puppets, which the children are already engaging with, and which will also form part of the ‘About Ourselves’ topic.

We have also invested in some new communication, language and literature games for the children.

Our next fundraiser is our Christmas Nativity fundraiser – more details to follow!
