Little Apples Pre-School

  • Little Apples is a friendly, successful pre-school within the unique setting of Speen Church of England School. Situated in an area of outstanding beauty, our facilities include both indoor and outdoor areas that the children can access throughout the day and regardless of the weather. Children can explore their wider environment during Forest School sessions which take place weekly. We are also able to enjoy the large school field facilities.

    Here at Little Apples pre-school we value each child as an individual. We follow the Early Years Foundation Curriculum, providing a broad and varied curriculum that meets all areas of development. Each child has a key person who is a point of contact for both parents and child, and with whom they can share information. We work in partnership with parents, valuing them as the child’s first educator. Little Apples uses ‘Tapestry’ online, to log each child’s developmental journey. This is what one of our parents said:

    “We love the tapestry updates and the children enjoy looking back at the photos and videos, so thank you to the staff for taking the time to do all the uploading – I appreciate there must be a fair amount of admin involved but it is lovely to see all the amazing things they get up to.”

    Our timetable offers children opportunities to cook, garden and experience music, movement and singing. There is a focus on ‘natural materials’ and moveable loose parts allowing children the freedom to create.

    We are pleased to be able to offer our facility to all and are proud of the facilities and learning opportunities that we provide to all those that choose to come to Little Apples.

     

    In June and July 2021, we undertook a consultation to lower the age of admissions in Little Apples from 3, to 2 and a half. Please see Pre school consultation summary Aug 21 which confirms our decision to accept 2 and a half year olds going forwards (dependent on spaces and staffing).
