Learning Through Play

At Holgate Preschool, children have access to a wide range of toys, games and resources and are encouraged to learn through play. Our practitioners plan interesting activities and set up well thought out learning opportunities so that the children can build on their interests and develop new skills.

Provision is based around the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) curriculum and is split into seven areas of learning: Personal Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, Physical Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

Children's develoment is regularly assessed and documented on the Tapestry website - an online learning journal which staff can update instantly and parents and carers can access securely.

At preschool, the children have access to a PC and the internet. When using these, the children are supervised and, as you would expect, we have filters in place to prevent them from accessing anything unsuitable. Please ask to see our E-Safety policy for more information.
