Crowmarsh Gifford

Pre-School

Welcome to Crowmarsh Pre-School

Crowmarsh Pre – School provides an exceptional learning experience for children aged between two and four years. We provide children with opportunities to learn and develop through play, supported by our team of experienced and dedicated practitioners.

The Pre – School is situated in the grounds of Crowmarsh Gifford Church of England Primary School. The setting benefits from a large, well-appointed classroom, which provides for all areas of learning.

We share our large outdoor space with the school’s Foundation Class. This, along with our close working relationship with the Primary School, supports a seamless transition from the Pre – School to School.

If you have any questions or would like to arrange a visit with your child, please call the school office (01491 836785) Alternatively, please e-mail PSadmin@crowmarsh-gifford.oxon.sch.uk

Growing and Learning Together

Our ethos of ‘Growing and learning together’ reflects our desire to build a learning community both within our own Pre – School and as part of our local community. We seek to do this by supporting and promoting the learning, development and wellbeing of all individuals connected with our setting. This includes children, parents, practitioners and visitors.

We believe that positive relationships are at the heart of great early years practice. Our strong emphasis on the keyperson system enables us to get to know each child well. This supports children to feel emotionally secure with us. Each keyperson is then able to assess children’s current level of development and to plan individual next steps which help to support their ongoing learning.

We seek to work in close partnership with parents, as we understand that they are the experts in their own children. This partnership enables us to share information and insights and supports us to deliver the most appropriate learning experiences for each child.

A Typical Day

We offer a choice of starting times – 8.45 or 9.00. As the children arrive, they are then encouraged to self-register.

Communication

The Staff and Committee of Crowmarsh Pre-School recognise the need for good communication.
