Even if you child doesn't normally attend session on a Friday, you can bring them and any siblings you would like to be photographed. There is no obligation to purchase photos afterwards. Please speak to staff or committee for more details.


We've recently adopted 'In The Moment Planning'!

What Is Planning In The Moment?

In The Moment Planning (ITMP) is all about seizing the moment to facilitate a child's own learning. Our staff have undergone professional training with Anna Ephgrave to become skilled ITMP practitioners, capable of drawing out children's knowledge and building on it, then and there (in the moment). 

Parents are encouraged to watch this short video which explains the basic theory behind how it is better for our children to learn in a way that interests them.

ITMP allows every child at Sherington Pre-School to be engaged in purposeful activity, and to feel in control as they are allowed to choose their own activities. 

Progress and development occur when a child's brain is most active. This happens when they are able to pursue their own interests and become deeply involved in their chosen activity. 

Our staff know the children very well, and know when to "seize" a teachable moment and when to stand back and observe. Parents are able to view their child's progress updates on Tapestry.
