Welcome to Barn Owls!
Your child is usually ready to move through to the Pre-School room the term after their 3rd birthday.
As the room is much bigger than the others, children may need more settling sessions to help them adjust to their new environment.
In Barn Owls we promote independence with lots of praise and encouragement from staff. This includes dressing themselves, self-serving their own food and drinks and using the bathroom.
We have a poem that we like to sing to encourage all the children (and staff!) to be kind and considerate to each other.
The Barn Owls Poem
We are kind from our head to our toes,
We have kind hands and kind words,
Our feet are for walking,
Our ears are for listening,
We share our toys and always take turns.
In Barn Owls we follow the ratio of 1:8. All staff are friendly and easy to approach.
We enjoy messy play, music and movement, story time, arts and crafts and Key-Person time where we are starting to promote the use of Phonics (first initial sounds)
We believe children learn through play so we do our best to provide opportunities throughout our setting to promote development in all 7 areas of the EYFS.
