Morning sessions are offered to our younger children and older children are offered afternoon sessions. We have maintained this organisation for many years as we feel we that we can support children’s learning and development best when they are grouped with peers that are a similar age. Our morning sessions for the younger children have a strong focus on the 3 prime areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage; Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal Social and Emotional development. We build on these areas of learning in the first year so that when children move into the afternoon sessions in their final year before school, they are ready to grow in all areas of learning and move towards independence. We introduce activities to help them become ready for school, such as PE sessions, Football and Dance sessions run by independent professionals. Teachers who visit our preschool tell us children who attend Pied Piper have good listening and attention skills and are very independent.
