We want to help your children to be happy, confident and to enjoy learning. At Greenmount Village Preschool all our learning and play activities are planned around the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). We offer a wide range of activities to cover all areas of child development . Our children have access to: • music sessions • physical development • nature study • arts and crafts • cooking • simple geography/history • looking at the world around us sessions
Children learn by playing and exploring. We encourage the children to learn through free play. We have:
• a home corner • a slide • a play house • dressing up clothes • daily outdoor play in our secure outside play area
Literacy The children enjoy daily storytelling sessions, and we also have a preschool library. Children can choose a book to take home in their book bag. They return the book once they’ve had a chance to look at it with their parent/carer.
Annual trip We run an annual trip for children and parents/carers. In the past few years we’ve been to Eureka, The Museum of Science and Industry and The East Lancashire Train/Museum of Transport.
Nativity Each year we hold a Christmas nativity. Our children love dressing up for this as much as their parents/carers/grandparents enjoy watching them!
Your child’s progress We keep a portfolio on how your child is getting on. Parents and carers are welcome to discuss their child’s progress with their key worker at any time. A report on every child is completed and shared with parents at the end of the summer term.
Nature study is an important to us and Greenmount preschool has a garden on the Kirklees Nature Trail. The children love to visit and help take care of the garden. Children also enjoy bringing in objects for our nature table and we have lively and informative discussions.
