We warmly welcome you to the Carle Class Page!
Carle Class is the Pre-School class at Eynesbury. Here we all work together to provide a caring, safe and stimulating environment for the children to enjoy. Our approach encompasses holistic learning encouraging our children to become active learners, exploring the world through a range of indoor and outdoor experiences. The children can choose to build a den, cook up a storm in the mud kitchen, climb a 'castle' or become a character dreamt up from their imagination. We have wonderful woodland area on our doorstep. Influenced by 'forest school' thinking , we support children to go on adventures, take risks and develop an appreciation of the natural world through sensory exploration.
The Pre-School Team
Mrs Hawkins is our Pre-School manager and Mrs Hoy is our Deputy Pre-School manager. They are supported by Mrs Owen, Mrs Wright and Mrs Vincent. All Pre-school practitioners actively encourage creating strong partnerships with parents and children, taking time to get to know each unique child and extend their learning following individual interests.
At Eynesbury we value the importance of learning through play and in particular through child initiated learning which follows the children's interests. The Pre-School uses Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage to plan a broad and balanced curriculum. Children take part in a range of playful activities, which focus on intellectual, creative, social and emotional development. Some activities are adult led and some are child led.
Children learn new skills, gain knowledge and show understanding through the seven areas of learning and development. The prime areas are Personal Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development. As children grow the prime areas help them develop skills in the four specific areas of Literacy, Numeracy, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
Look at all the lovely things we get to do at Pre-School! We paint, we sing, we climb, we explore and all the time we are playing we are learning!
We have some available spaces in the Pre-School for September 2021 !
