About Us

Henley Pre-School is a committee run charity, rated good by Ofsted (November 2016).


Our aim is to provide a safe friendly and stimulating environment, where children can expand their own individual and creative skills through imaginative and social activities. We cater for the individual needs of the children and ensure equal opportunities through carefully planned activities to help them develop and progress in all areas of learning, these are: Personal, social and emotional, physical, communication and language, literature, maths and understanding the world.


The purpose of the Pre-School is to encourage children to learn through play by discovering, creating and having fun. Our philosophy is to engage the children in our care in age appropriate activities that they will not only enjoy and learn from but also give them the opportunity to challenge themselves and progress.


Our latest Ofsted inspection report is on display, along with our policies, at Pre-School. The report is also available online at www.ofsted.gov.uk


 

At Henley Pre-School we operate a Key Person system. Each Child is allocated a Key Person when they join us. The Key Person is responsible for keeping up to date development records (in the form of a Learning Journey) for each child. These records cover all areas of development through the initial phase of the Early Year's Foundation Stage which carries children through to the end of reception (foundation). Parents are welcome to see their child's Learning Journey at any time.

We are in the process of enrolling in a Tapestry, an easy-to-use online learning journal. It is a fantastic way for the staff and parents/carers to record, track and celebrate their child/children's progress in early years education.
