Here at Denbigh Pre-School we strive to create a warm and welcoming environment in which the children feel safe and secure. The practitioners provide a calm environment where children are happy, confident and enjoy learning through play.
Positive relationships are built up between the practitioners, children and parents through our key person system which encourages children to thrive.
Practitioners help children to feel valued by providing positive support through their language, praise and encouragement which helps to build the children's confidence and self-esteem.
We use the Early Years Foundation Curriculum in our approach to children’s education, learning and development.
Through Planning, Observing, Evaluating and assessing the children, we track their progress and learning.
The quality of our provision is continually reflected upon and our overall methodology to learning is of key importance.
In order for children to succeed in life they need to feel happy, safe/secure and encouraged to learn, our environment offers opportunities for children to do this through a balance of adult led and child led activities.
Our Pre-School has six main rooms which are:
