Our Nursery Provision:
Here at Leatherhead Trinity, our Early Years Foundation Stage is based upon four principles:
We aim to provide quality teaching and learning throughout a child's stay in our school. We secure quality provision for all new entrants, meeting the needs of the individual child by adhering to the following underlying principles of quality provision:
active - based on hands on involvement.
personally meaningful - what children are interested in.
experiential - learning by doing.
exploratory - curiosity as a key motivator.
developmentally appropriate - matching age and stage.
social - stressing co-operation.
creative - using invention and imagination.
process-orientated - help given in appropriate stages.
integrated - holistic approach to learning.
rigorous - stressing the children's responsibility.
Through this, children develop a sense of self-worth and an ability to put that alongside a sense of others.
We encourage a 'sense of others' in all aspects of life and remind all the children of how they are 'role models' for each other. As adults, we have an even greater responsibility to 'set a good example' and therefore we encourage the children to listen as well as talk.
We feel very strongly that the partnership and communication with parents should be an open and honest one, built on mutual trust and respect. The children are closely monitored and we hold parent consultations/evenings regularly during the year, however if the need arises we will make appointments to meet with parents at other times. An annual written report is given at the end of each academic year, e.g. Nursery and Reception.
