Our beautiful playroom offers the children a wide variety of activities both fun and educational. We also have a lovely outside garden and a covered external play area so that the children can enjoy the fresh air, whatever the weather! Little Frogs hopes that you and your child enjoy being members of the pre-school and that you both find taking part in our activities interesting and stimulating. The staff and committee are always ready and willing to talk with you about your ideas, views or questions. Parents are young children's first educators. Children's involvement in pre-school ensures that home-based learning and the learning opportunities in the pre-school extend and reinforce each other. A major factor in children's learning is their own confidence and self esteem. Our playleaders will ensure in the group setting that each individual child is acknowledged and valued. This should give each child the self confidence needed to make the big move to school. Each child is allocated a Keyperson, who will work with Parents and your child to initially settle into Pre-school life. The Keyperson will maintain records (now electronic) on your child's progress and alongside parents plan for your child's' next steps. We work in conjunction with other agencies and organisations to help make a smooth transition to school and the journey of lifetime learning. Little Frogs is registered with the Charity Commission (our charity number is 1156532) and have been inspected and approved by Ofsted (our Ofsted number is EY480034).
