In the Family Room children under 2 years of age will have a daily diary sheet giving you a clear picture of what your child has been doing each day, how much they have eaten, whether they have taken a nap and so on. Using this to talk to your child about what they have been doing can be a great way of encouraging speech and language development. In the pre-school room there are parent meetings once a term with key workers, but we're happy to chat at any time. We're here for you:. 50 weeks per year.
At about 3 years old the children are ready to move up into the pre-school room. The room has zoned areas for different types of play from role-play activities, quiet story reading areas, mark making, ICT, construction and messy play. In Sunbeams Pre-school room we also use the leters and sounds early phonics programme and jigsaw (personal social and emotional development) programme. The children take part once a week in a regular small group maths, letters and sounds and PSED activity. 50 weeks per year.
