We would like to welcome you to Severnbanks Starlets, our Early Years provision for children from three years of age. We are situated in Severnbanks Primary School and form part of the Foundation Stage (EYFS) setting.
- To provide high quality care and education for children below statutory school age.
- To work in partnership with parents to help children learn and develop.
- To provide a caring, safe, secure and stimulating environment that promotes learning through play.
- To work with a framework which ensures equality of opportunity for all children and families.
We put children at the very heart of our provision, our prime focus when your child joins our setting will be to help them achieve a high level of emotional, behavioural and school wellbeing, we know these are key factors in enabling children to be more engaged and make better progress in their learning as they move through their primary school years and beyond. On entry to Starlets your child will be assigned a Key Worker. Your Child’s Key Worker provides familiarity, pattern and predictability and will help your child understand who they are and what they can do.
Children learn by playing, observing and being with others. All EYFS staff will facilitate learning opportunities through play individually and with others. Your child will also be taught through adult directed activities. Children concentrate and learn more effectively if not under stress or pressure, so having a familiar adult who is attentive and knows your child well will support their development.
Staff interact with the children by encouraging, facilitating and supporting them whilst they have fun, learning through play, talking about their experiences and share their enjoyment with others, enabling your child to grow in confidence and independence.
