PRE-SCHOOL

Belmont Preschool provides a high standard of care, education and learning opportunities.  Children are able to explore a rich and diverse range of activities within a flexible, stimulating, inclusive and welcoming learning environment.  We aim to help the children develop self-respect, respect for others and respect for their environment, to fulfil their full potential. 

Children develop in a fun and relaxed environment, thus providing an excellent start to your child’s education.

We believe that children thrive in a happy stimulating and exciting environment.  Praise encouragement and fun in these vital early years of their education allow every child a for filling and positive experience.

The involvement of parents/carers in their child's preschool experience plays a crucial role in building a firm foundation for future education,

Belmont Preschool is registered to provide pre-school care and education for 24 children, each session.

Learning and development 

Here at Belmont we follow the curriculum following the 6 areas of learning set down in the Preschool Education Curricular Guidance. We also base our weekly plans on the children's interests and ideas as this helps the children progress and achieve in all six areas of development.

Areas:

Personal, Social and Emotional

Physical

Communication and Language

Mathematics

Literacy

Understanding the World

Expressive Art and Design

The children learn through play-based activities and resources, inside and outside, as recommended in the curricular guidance.

Children are able to explore and experience developmentally appropriate activities independently, with lots of praise and encouragement from staff.

Input from and partnership with parents plays a crucial role in helping the children achieve the best possible outcomes.

Some of the aims of the curriculum is for your child to:

Be independent
Share with others
Trust new adults an accept new situations
Experiment with all sorts of materials and be able to cope with uncertainty and learn through trial and error.
Express themselves in different ways
Develop language and listening skills.
Have a try at doing things for themselves allowing the child to learn at their own pace and gain a positive image of themselves as learners.
Value others and be considerate
