A BIT ABOUT US

Our Mission

 

Our belief is the children who are part of Adel pre-school should be free to express, explore, be excited and inspired by the wonders that lay at our feet, above our heads and everywhere in between .

We view children as competent, active, enquiring thinkers who instinctively engage with people, objects and events as they make sense of the world around them.

 

We balance risk with learning opportunities to enable children to have the very best experience which are exciting and thrilling to take part in, stimulating wonder and awe.

Water Play 

We have waterplay available all day every day. Water play builds the foundation for understanding various scientific concepts. Did you know we use water play to teach basic mathematics? It will introduce children to terms such as Full, Empty, Half, Less. We will measure, compare volumes and observe motion, maybe water a plant too, we will transport the water to different areas of the play area mixing with different things, noting the changes.

Our Environment

 

Children grow from outdoor learning. Everything a child needs to develop successfully can be taught and supported by nature.  We give children a connection to nature and the world around them by providing a wealth of real life, natural objects and open-ended materials and authentic tools.

 

 

The raindrops have a unique indoor area that is a home from home, with everything a child needs to develop, age appropriate furniture, and a wealth of resources so that the children in the raindrops room can develop their own ideas and experiment to make their own conclusions and hypothesis. The raindrops have continual access to their outdoor play area, with a mud kitchen, cosy area for quiet play or reading, construction, sand and water play. 

 

 

The rainbows enjoy all year round outdoor learning, they have everything they need to develop in the main area with invitations to play and provocations designed around the children's needs, the rainbows also benefit from our forest school area, with learning opportunities like camp fire cooking, bug hunting and an allotment.
