Wingle-Tye Pre-School was established in 1990 and is a private registered setting located next to Nelmes School. Due to the subsequent success of Wingle-Tye I we opened Wingle-Tye II located at Fairkytes Art Centre also in Hornchurch. We aim to provide an educational programme for the care of children in the local community, within a happy, healthy, safe and stimulating environment and where parents are able to feel confident that their children are being cared for by experienced and qualified staff.
We aim to teach learning through play with plenty of stories to help develop listening and language skills and games to enable number recognition. We offer a varied selection of indoor and outdoor play activities that are both challenging and stimulating which will promote the development of fine and gross motor skills, all mixed with lots of sharing and socialising which are very important skills for preparing the children for school. We will encourage children to become confident, independent and developing respect for themselves as well as for other individuals.
Everyone in our school is entitled to facilities and resources that are continually being improved. Wingle-Tye is to be enjoyed.
The aims of Wingle-Tye are:
- To provide an environment that is not only safe but stimulating and happy.
- To recognise that the child’s needs and safety are paramount and must override all other considerations.
- To work in partnership with parents, carers and other professionals.
- To take account of the children’s needs arising from race, culture, language and religion.
- To provide quality care and education for children.
- To actively promote the development of positive self image within the children.
- To eliminate racism and create a non-sexist atmosphere throughout its whole structure.
- To create a developmentally appropriate curriculum to meet the children’s individual needs.
- To provide places for special needs children, with staff who are trained to give the child and parent/main carer support.
- To support the children’s families.
- To share information, resources and practical advice.
- To formulate and encourage equal opportunities for both children and adults.
- To support staff on training courses enabling them to develop skills and confidence through sharing full responsibility for their group.
We follow The Early Years Foundation Stage which provides the statutory framework for young childrens learning and development. Young children learn best when they are enjoying practical experiences which are relevant to the child.
The Early Years Foundation Stage areas of learning and development are:
- Personal, social and emotional development
- Communication, and language
- Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy
- Physical development
- Expressive Arts and Design
As parents/carers you can help by:
- Watching and listening.
- Giving praise and developing their confidence.
- Being a role model in reading/writing.
- Joining in with their play – but letting them take charge in games, making up their own rules.
- Making them independent by letting them try things out without telling them it is wrong.
- Stopping when the child has had enough and is becoming bored with the activity.
Please remember that helping your child does not have to cost money, your time is the most valuable resource you have. Please take the time to read our policies and procedures and if you have any worries or concerns please feel free to come and talk to us. We can talk to you privately and anything said will be kept in the strictest confidence.
