Children benefit from a caring and supportive environment where each child is known and nurtured. Guilden Morden Pre-school aims to do this by being small, friendly and community based. It is managed by Guilden Morden Primary School and is led by a small and carefully selected team of staff.
We provide a safe and stimulating environment where children learn through play. Children love coming to our Pre-school where play and learning are carefully integrated. Progress and development is normally rapid in all areas and we encourage the children’s natural curiosity and love for learning. Children can meet and make friends, play with new equipment, learn to share and improve their patience, while their confidence grows. This all provides wonderful preparation for moving up to primary school. Our Pre-school sessions are planned around the children’s interests and areas of development.
We treat each child as an individual with individual needs, abilities, like and dislikes. These are taken into account when planning sessions and we provide activities between which children can move freely. This encourages decision-making whilst ensuring all early learning goals are offered in exciting ways which stimulate the children’s learning.
We also work closely with parents/carers, incorporating their ideas, thoughts, past experiences, skills and time, to make our Pre-school fully respect the needs, feelings and cultural backgrounds of all those associated with it. Above all, we aim to offer a full range of interesting and motivating activities to ensure that the children enjoy their time in Pre-school and benefit from a variety of experiences and achievements.
