We're having an Open Morning!
Visit our Open morning us on Friday 15th February between 10:00 - 11:30 for a chat, explore the setting and see how our expert team prepare children to become “school ready” and go on to be lifelong learners. Bring your little one and let them get stuck in! Meet the staff, committee and other local parents. We are now enrolling for September 2019 starts. Places fill up fast!
We've recently adopted 'In The Moment Planning'!
In The Moment Planning (ITMP) is all about seizing the moment to facilitate a child's own learning. Our staff have undergone professional training with Anna Ephgrave to become skilled ITMP practitioners, capable of drawing out children's knowledge and building on it, then and there (in the moment).
Parents are encouraged to watch this short video which explains the basic theory behind how it is better for our children to learn in a way that interests them.
ITMP allows every child at Sherington Pre-School to be engaged in purposeful activity, and to feel in control as they are allowed to choose their own activities.
Progress and development occur when a child's brain is most active. This happens when they are able to pursue their own interests and become deeply involved in their chosen activity.
Our staff know the children very well, and know when to "seize" a teachable moment and when to stand back and observe. Parents are able to view their child's progress updates on Tapestry.

Thank you Alban Hill Nurseries for hosting another fantastic fundraiser for Sherington Pre-school on 27th October. Everyone was glad to visit the cafe to warm up!
