Aims & Objectives 

The aim of our Playgroup is to provide a warm, friendly, safe and stimulating environment in which your child can thrive and flourish with enriched learning provided by well trained and caring staff. Our principal approach is to aim to:

i. Set good levels of standards
ii. Provide equality of opportunity
iii. Create a framework for partnership working
iv. Continually improve and reflect upon quality and consistency
v. Assist in laying a secure foundation for future learning

Therefore, the Playgroup will aim to establish relationships with children and their parents through, planning the learning environment and curriculum to support and extend children's play and learning. This will be done by assessing children's achievements and then planning their next steps. All our Staff have good knowledge with regard to the Development in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). The aim is that each child should be working towards or achieving the goals set within this by the time they reach mainstream school.

During our sessions we will provide child centred activities covering all seven areas of learning and development. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children's curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive. The three PRIME areas are:

i. Personal, social and emotional development
ii. Communication and language
iii. Physical development

This leaves four specific areas through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. The four SPECIFIC areas are:

i. Literacy
ii. Mathematics
iii. Understanding the world
iv. Expressive arts and design

All of these areas of development will be taught to help each child to progress at a pace suitable to their individual needs. This will be monitored closely by their Key worker who through doing regular observations for each area of development will be able to assess individual's progress and level of development. The children will be given the opportunity to learn to respect and value all people.

To enable us to meet these aims we very much need and encourage parental involvement. You can help by means of a Stay and Play session and by supporting the fundraising events, which are needed to help run and equip the Playgroup or if you wish, you could become a Committee Member. To help us achieve these Aims and Objectives the Playgroup will ensure that they follow "The Governments National Educational Standards".

These standards are regulated by the Early Years Directorate within the "Office for Standards in Education" (OFSTED). These National Standards represent a baseline of quality to which we as a playgroup should not falter on. So, their intended aim is to underpin a continuous improvement in the quality care that we aim to provide for the children.
