Sherington Pre-School was established over 40 years ago and is a traditional, family focused pre-school in a village location. We are proud to be a community-based organisation. We work in partnership with families to ensure that children are fully supported to learn through play, develop friendships and skills that allow them to fully enjoy their time at preschool, prepare them for school and life beyond.
Smaller than average adult to child ratios allow our children to develop at their own pace, with the support of a designated keyperson. Thanks to these ratios we can tailor activities to suit the individual interests and needs of each of our children.
We take a child-initiated approach, known as In The Moment Planning, enabling staff follow the child’s unique personal interests to implement "teachable moments" and extend opportunities for learning without intruding or disturbing what the child has chosen to do. "When children are allowed to select, where, when and what to play, they are truly invested in their play, they become deeply involved and make dramatic progress".

EYFS sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

We committed to building a 'culture of safety' in which children, young people and vulnerable adults are protected from abuse and harm in all areas of our service delivery. Our trained designated person who co-ordinates child protection issues is: Kerry Kitchen and Nicole Freeden as Deputy.
Every year we ask families to provide feedback on their experience. Thank you to all our Parents for completing the 2018 questionnaire!
