We are a setting who provide opportunities for children to explore and excel!

We have been awarded 'OUTSTANDING' in the aspect of personal development from our recent Ofsted inspection.

 

'Children beam with confidence and pride. They lovingly celebrate each others efforts and instinctively do all they can to make visitors feel welcome.' - Ofsted 2019

'Children have excellent opportunities to learn about the differences and similarities between themselves and show exceptional levels of respect for others.' - Ofsted 2019

 
 

We are a warm, friendly, committee run preschool with close links to Bumps, Babes & Tots and Old Newton Primary School.

We operate in Old Newton Village Hall and have access to an outdoor area so Children can learn both in the indoors and outdoors learning environment. We are in the very fortunate position to be in a rural location surrounded by fields, woods and a play park. Staff ensure children have opportunities to access these facilities regularly allowing children to learn across the 7 areas of learning within a variety of environments.  

We use and implement the 'In the moment' planning system. This is where we use our knowledge of each individual child and build and extend their development while doing something the child is interested in. We are very much child led with a great routine, structure and boundaries. 

We encourage the children to be as independent as possible, we are preparing them not only for school but for many other future experiences and the life skills they need to learn and thrive.
