About The Little Woods Preschool

At THE LITTLE WOODS PRESCHOOLPre-School Group we strive to create a happy atmosphere where learning is fun. THE LITTLE WOODS PRESCHOOLencourages children, parents and staff to embrace and enjoy their early experiences. We believe children learn most effectively through first hand experiences and their own activities. The staff at THE LITTLE WOODS PRESCHOOL is committed to provide high quality learning experiences through an appropriate broad balanced Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum based on play and communication. The learning environment is carefully planned so that children grow in independence and take increasing responsibility of themselves and others. Children come first to THE LITTLE WOODS PRESCHOOL and their personal safety, interests and education are of paramount interest to us for they are treated fairly and respected as individuals in their own right who given the right amount of attention will develop naturally and be ready for a formal primary school education when they leave THE LITTLE WOODS PRESCHOOL Pre-School. Learning should be fun but making learning fun through teaching can be a complex task. Therefore to achieve this, we have developed a 10 point plan which each Key person would work towards in conjunction with EYFS
