Welcome to Stoke Canon Pre-School
At Stoke Canon Primary School children of Preschool age and school Reception age learn and play together sharing our well-resourced indoor and outdoor areas. The children in the Foundation Unit follow the EYFS underpinned by the school’s vision and values. Nurture and Grow Together through Compassion, Integrity and Kindness and through a caring Chrisian atmosphere. Each area of learning and development is implemented through planned, purposeful play, and through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activities. Practitioners respond to each child’s emerging needs and interests, guiding their development through warm, positive interaction. As children grow older, and as their development allows, the balance gradually shifts towards more adult-led activities to help children prepare for more formal learning, ready for Year 1.
