During their time at Daisy Hill Pre-School your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development:
Children should mostly develop the 3 prime areas first. These are:
These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning. As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:
All the fun activities that you do with your child at home are important in supporting their learning and development and have a really long lasting effect on your child’s learning as they progress through school. Even when your child is very young and is not yet able to talk, talking to them helps them to learn and understand new words and ideas.
On our website are two forms which you can use to fill in to help contribute to your child's learning and development record and which will also help us see how they are extending their learning.
The WOW I never knew my child could………. to record what they have done/learned whether at home or which they have learned at our pre school here in Westhoughton and re-enacted at home.
The speech bubble to record things your child has said which reflect their learning, either new words learned or constructing sentences or speaking logically which shows they have processed thoughts or just something funny which makes you laugh!
You can either print off fill these in and bring them into Pre-School or email them to us!
