Playgroup

The Playgroup runs each weekday during school term times from 9.00 am to 3:00 pm.  The Playgroup accommodates for children aged 2 - 3 years.  We normally take up to 8 children in any one session (but can increase this to 12) and for each session we aim to maintain a staff:child ratio of 1:4. The children will be allocated a Key Person denoted by a group colour – Blue, Yellow or Red. Each member of staff will have particular responsibility for one group of children and will be the “Key-person” of those children. This may change as the children develop relationships with individual staff members.

There is a time-table for each session which gives some structure and routine to the morning. During the morning the children will be involved in a range of activities planned through the High/Scope approach to promote development in all areas of the curriculum – personal and social development, early literacy and numeracy skills, physical and creative skills and the development of knowledge and understanding. We work using the Early Years Foundation Stage and plan on the children,s individual interests. There will be opportunities for the children to work within small groups and as a whole group; they will be given time to plan and choose, carry out and review their own activities; to take part in more structured activities planned by the staff to develop skills, interests, knowledge and understanding; to sing, listen and move to music: to develop physical skills by using the large apparatus and wheeled toys; to take part in games; to listen to stories: to build relationships and friendships with both the adults and other children in the Group: and many other activities - the list of opportunities is endless!
