The Kindergarten has a maximum of 14 children at any one time and averages 20 children in total, which allows staff to get to know children and parents well.
Staff meet fortnightly to plan and assess. Tapestry is used to record EYFS progress and keep parents informed. Inspired by the success of extended kindergartens (to 7 years) in Europe, we similarly extend the EYFS assessments to 6 years plus, allowing children to mature in their own time, with loving encouragement. Where statutory school age children attend on a part-time basis their parents are advised re: lessons, which their child will not receive at school.
