Welcome to Teeny Townies! We know that as a parent you know your child far better than anyone else so we strive to build positive relationships with you throughout your child’s time here. We encourage and welcome our families to be involved in their child's journey with us through their pre-school year.
The environment plays a very important role in supporting and extending your child’s learning and development, so we are really proud to be able to offer this in our new purpose built Early Years building which provides a very stimulating environment.
Your child’s learning will be based around play that is fun and exciting and our activities will covers the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. The main areas that we will follow are the Prime areas, these are:
Communication and Language;
Physical Development; and
Personal, Social and Emotional.
We also include the Specific areas:
Understanding the World; and
Expressive Arts and Design.
Included below is a, a Parent’s Guide to the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework booklet that contains more information about these areas and how you can support your child’s learning and development at home.
Upon starting at Teeny Townies, your child will be allocated a key person who will ensure that your child’s learning and care is tailored to their individual needs and that they share any successes or concerns with you.
Most children settle happily into pre-school within a week or two. However, if the staff or you feel that your child needs you with them for a little longer please do not worry about this – it is quite normal. You are welcome to stay during the session for this settling in period. Your child will feel confident if you do.
We ask that you please inform us if someone different is collecting your child. We operate a password system which is kept confidential between you and the practitioners at Teeny Townies. We cannot and will not let a child leave with someone who is not known to us.
