How do you know the setting is right for your child?

Here at Scotter Pre-School, we appreciate how important it is to ensure you have found the right setting for your child.

Your child’s well-being and development are our main priorities and we offer a warm and supportive environment with well qualified and experienced staff in order to ensure your child’s happiness. We work in partnership with parents and carers and encourage your feedback so we can work together in order to provide the best care for your child.

Ultimately, the best way to make up your mind is to visit Scotter Pre-school for yourself. We operate an open-door policy and welcome you to come with your child to look around our wonderful pre-school and talk to us personally.

Settling In Period

The Settling-in-process is a gradual introduction, we welcome pre-visits before your child starts their journey with us. From their very first day it is important your child is allowed to acclimatise to the new environment, are supported to make new friends and encouraged to be curious and explore through play.

It is also a gradual withdrawal of your presence and these two aspects with parents/carer and your child’s designated Key Person are planned carefully and with sensitivity. The Key Person is a member of staff who will support you and your child during this transitional phase, focusing on forming strong bonds, taking care of your child’s well-being and provide an individual learning journey for them.

Friday Club

Moving from Pre-School to Primary School is a time of change for children and parents, one which is full of opportunity and potential. Our Friday sessions are specially reserved for children who will be attending Primary School the following September. This is designed specifically to assist in a smooth transition from from Pre-School to Primary School. We have a planned programme in place to support your child before and during your child’s transition and prepare your child to leave our Pre-school a happy, confident child.

School Readiness is a measure of how prepared a child is to succeed, cognitively, socially and emotionally.

As our Friday Club always proves to be popular, the number of places can be limited, children who already attend our other sessions will be given priority of a place first.
