Welcome to our Pre-School page, we are a term time only setting located in the grounds of Madley Primary School.  Our mission is to provide a purposeful, calm and respectful setting that allows each child to express themselves and engage with their learning  in a safe and healthy environment. Our children enjoy exploring our beautiful building learning through play and trying out new things. We explore at Forest School each week and enjoy creating in our mud kitchen each day. We are very proud to share with you that we have recently been awarded with our Values Award by Dr Neil Hawkes celebrating how we work to promote Values with children and adults around us. Neil wrote in his report.." A special word about Madley Pre-School. This has been refurbished since our last visit and we witnessed an outstanding learning environment where the pupils are lovingly and skilfully supported in their learning activities. The Pre-School is well led and supported by a dedicated group of adults. The Pre-School reminded us of a number of outstanding Pre-Schools that we have seen in Scandinavian countries".  Not many Early Years settings have achieved this prestigious award, we are one of only a few in the country...something to celebrate. We have spaces coming up in 2019 please call in and see us or call on 01981251460. We look forward to hearing from you.

"Where happy children learn."

Forest School.

We all enjoyed our Forest School morning. We sat around the fire, we listened to the birds and watched the 'orange flames dance.' Forest School is an important part of Pre-School and we have many opportunities to offer the children. We believe children have the right to be understood as individuals and to be given time and opportunity to develop as creative, competent learners in a secure and inspiring space, with lots of access to the outdoors. We feel that Forest School helps to support such learning. We look at theories and continual lines of enquiry that help us as adults to develop each child as an individual. We will visit Forest School every Monday and hope to toast marshmallows very soon.

We have focused on physical play this week and are enjoying observing what the children can do and what we can do to support their development.We have provided parents with ideas to use at home to support physical play and are looking forward to hearing how children have been getting on.

We are very lucky to use the village hall each week. We walk across and use our soft mats to create gym time. Children climb, under,over, on and through and enjoy having a large space to run around in. We use a smaller room to be creative with our music and movement. Using musical instruments and enjoying the opportunity to build a repertoire of songs and experiment with making music.

We enjoyed exploring poppies and why they so important at this time of year.

Fireworks and exciting words. We have enjoyed recalling our favourite memories of fireworks night. We listented to each others stories and how different the fireworks sounded. Some of us were a little bit scared. We then all sat together to draw our fireworks, "mine were very loud" recalled Ethan.

Remembering others and looking closely at poppies.

Determination and 'having a go'. When bricks fall down we don't give up, we keep building...we can do it! Balancing is sometimes tricky, but we concentrate and keep going. If we fall we get back up and have another go.
