The Grantham Preparatory School - Breakfast Club

Welcome to the Grantham Preparatory Early Years Foundation Unit

In our care children thrive and make excellent progress within all the areas of learning and development. It is our aim to have happy, independent children, who are confident in their play and learning. In our last ISI inspection report (2014) it was said that in EYFS there was a rich breadth of planned purposeful activities, both indoors and outside that enabled the children to develop and learn extremely effectively.

The unit offers full and part time places for children. The EYFS Unit accepts children in the term after they are three and government funding enables the children to access five free afternoon sessions. This continues until the term after they have reached five years old. Prior to commencing, we offer 6 weekly half day Taster sessions and we visit the child’s existing nursery to discuss their progress with their key person. This aids a smooth transition into the setting.

We run a key person system to ensure excellent communication between home and school and work in partnership with the parents to ensure children have a curriculum which not only meets their needs but also their interests.

We have an excellent staff ratio and highly qualified staff who are supported by qualified and experienced assistants. All staff within the EYFS Unit hold paediatric first aid certificates.

Children can access the outdoors all year round as the school provides warm and waterproof all-in-one suits for the children to wear. Attached to the unit is a large area covered by a canopy and on the school playing field there are several wooded areas in which the children have a den and climbing areas to explore and play in. The EYFS children also regularly use the school’s adventure playground and have P.E. lessons in the hall.

Within the EYFS Unit there is an interactive whiteboard which the children can access or is used by staff to aid the children’s learning. There are planned sessions in the school’s ICT room and the children also have opportunities to use and play with different programmable toys, equipment and ipads.

The EYFS children regularly visit surrounding places in the school mini bus for different learning experiences, such as a village walk, fruit picking at a local farm, planting at a nearby allotment, an indoor soft play area, and Belton House.

The school offers a creche facility to help with wrap around care; it opens at 8am and closes at 6pm.
