Honywood Preschool’s vision:
Our vision is to promote children’s learning through play. Personal, social and emotional development plays a central role with regard to children positively engaging with their family; the preschool setting and the community in which they are living. Our work focuses on encouraging and promoting personal, social and emotional development so that our children feel safe and secure and can grow the confidence to develop their natural imagination and curiosity, allowing them to become active learners.
Within the preschool, children explore new activities, develop friendships with adults and peers and progress in all areas of their learning and development. Beyond preschool, we aim for children to enjoy new experiences especially that of their transition to Primary School. We feel that children who are supported by their parents, the preschool and who have formed strong friendships with peers are able to embrace the new challenges that transition to primary school can bring.
Honywood Preschool aims to:
• Provide high quality care and education for children below statutory school age;
• Work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop;
• Add to the life and well-being of the local community; and
• Offer children and their parents a service that promotes equality and values diversity
You are regarded as your child’s primary educator and Honywood Preschool would like to support your child’s development whilst recognising your parental right to be:
• Valued and respected;
• Kept informed, consulted and involved.
At Honywood Pre-school we depend upon the good will of parents to help fundraise and support the setting through the ‘Friends of Honywood Pre-school’.
We aim to ensure that each child:
• Is in a safe and stimulating environment;
• Is given generous care and attention, because of our ratio of qualified staff to children;
• Has the chance to join in with other children and adults to live, play, work and learn together;
• Is helped to take forward her/his learning and development by being helped to build on what she/he already knows and can do;
• Has a key person who makes sure each child makes progress;
• Is in a setting that sees parents as partners in helping each child to learn and develop;
• Is in a setting in which parents are valued.
