Welcome to Clawton Pre-school and Toddler Group
The Inside Scoop... Joining
You know your child better than anyone and this is why you and your child are asked to complete our "This Is Me" sheet, to enable the staff to incorporate suggestions, preferences and air any worries that you or your child may have.
We operate a Key Person system which means your child will be assigned a member of staff that will be responsible for their learning, development, safety and well being and they will be able to record their development and learning in detail.

What We Get Up To
Session planning is done a weekly basis which enables your child's interests and suggestions to be taken into account and helps to keep the children motivated. We feel allowing the children to suggest ideas helps to give them a sense of belonging. The weekly plan is always on view for parents to see.
The Pre-school has a strong Leadership Team with teacher involvement every Thursday and on-going transition to the School Reception Class.
We use encouragement and praise to promote good behaviour. Distraction techniques are employed to discourage unwanted behaviour, along with the removal of any potential problem.
We start our day at 9.30 am, where children are able to access all activities after their registration.
An adult led activity with specific learning outcomes is introduced around 10 am.
Snack time is approximately 10.30 am and your child will be involved in setting the table and serving our healthy food and drink to the whole group.
After snack we enjoy songs and rhymes, followed by a physical activity until lunch.
On our shorter days we finish with a story and singing our Clawton Pre-School song before home time.
On our longer days further activities take place until home time at 3 pm.
