Caterpillar Pre-School

 

Caterpillars is our pre-school setting for children aged 3+. We offer up to 15 hours of funded pre-school education for eligible children in three hour sessions. Sessions run Monday – Friday 08:30 – 11:30 or 12:30 – 15:30 during term time (37 weeks per year).

We follow the EYFS Statutory Framework (2008) and firmly believe that:

Every child deserves the best possible start in life and support to their full potential. A child’s experience in the early years has a major impact on their future life chances. A secure safe and happy childhood is important in its own right, and it provides the foundation for children to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up. When parents choose to use early years services they want to know the provision will keep their children safe and help them to thrive. The Early Years Foundation Stage is the framework that provides that assurance.

(EYFS Statutory Framework, May 2008)

Caterpillar Pre-School 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 its local community;
  • Offer children and their parents a service, which promotes equality and values diversity.

  • Anti-bullying Week

    The children have been busy making anti-bullying displays to put up in their classrooms to remind them of the ‘Power for Good’. The displays will help the children to understand the difference between bullying and being unkind/mean. They will also help the children to identify different types of bullying and what to do if they see bullying happening at Millbrook.
