Information for Parents & Carers “Fun when learning” We are a voluntary Pre-school serving the village of Ascott under Wychwood and surrounding communities. We meet in a modern village hall – known as the Tiddy Hall. As well as this superb in-door area, we have a well equipped outside play area and garden. We make full use of the surrounding countryside. We work in close partnership with the Primary Schools in the Wychwoods and Leafield, and the Leafield Pre-school. Ofsted has rated us a good Pre-school. We commit ourselves to:  working in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop  enriching the life and well-being of the local community  treating everyone equally and celebrating diversity  providing high quality care and education. Parents Parents are members of our Pre-school and we hope they will play a full part in our life and work. Parents are:  valued and respected  kept informed – through regular newsletters and children’s learning journals  consulted – on anything that involves their children  involved – we hope parents will act as volunteers in Pre-school  included in everything we do –parents are welcomed to join the management committee We make every effort to see that every child:  is in a safe, stimulating and healthy environment  receives love, care and individual attention. We have a high ratio of adults, staff and volunteers, to children  can join with other children and adults - living, playing, working and learning together  learns - building on what she or he already knows and can do 1  has a personal key person they can trust, who supports them to learn, develop and achieve their full potential.  sees their parents as partners in the school, working with staff to help them develop as happy, independent and confident young people  understands that parents help run their school. Working together for your children In our Pre-school we maintain a high ratio of adults to children. This is usually higher than set through the Welfare Requirements. We also have volunteer parent helpers. This helps us to:  give time and attention to each child  talk with the children about their interests and activities.  find and help talents to flower  help children to experience and benefit from all the activities we provide; and  allow the children to explore and be adventurous in safety.

Key persons and your child Our Pre-school uses a key person approach. This means that each member of staff has a group of children for whom they are particularly responsible. Your child's key person will be the person who works with you to make sure that what we provide is right for your child's particular needs and interests.
