The Rising Fives
Our pre-school room staff are committed to all the individual needs of the child whilst working towards extending the child’s capabilities. We provide a secure, caring and stimulating environment in which children learn through play and discovery and daily circle time.
In R:5’s learning is based around the EYFS seven areas of learning – Communication and Language, Mathematics, Understanding the World, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Expressive Arts and Design.
Communication and language are essential to children’s development, the staff in R:5’s have had additional training in ICAN so they can support children with speech and language difficulties if required. Speaking and listening are the foundations for reading and writing, to ensure that these foundations are firm we follow letters and sounds Phase 1 in R:5’s.
Good relationships with local schools and the staff’s detailed knowledge of each child prepare them for the transition from nursery to school.
