Angmering Village Preschool is a small, traditional style preschool situated in the heart of Angmering Village, established since 1995. We offer a very friendly welcome for you and your child and pride ourselves on getting to know our children and their families, building strong relationships with them. We are situated in the Village Hall on Station Road. We use the main hall which is a bright spacious room with plenty of space. There are construction, small world and art trollies that allow the children access to a wide range of equipment and a lovely role play kitchen that is especially popular with our younger children. Books are always available in our quiet area to share with an adult or to look at independently. Our large secure garden has an all-weather surface area and a lawned area so we can have outdoor play daily, whatever the weather!
There are three small sheds housing sand and water toys, construction toys and a role play house which enable the children to independently choose and access what they wish to play with. We also have a very popular mud kitchen, music wall and lots more equipment to inspire the children’s play.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage and our curriculum follows its seven educational programmes, communication and language, personal, social and emotional development, physical development, literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design. We take time to get to know your child’s needs, interests and development so we can use this knowledge to plan challenging and enjoyable experiences for them covering all areas of learning and development. The children have various small group activities throughout the day where they read stories using a range of props, science experiments, musical activities, activities to build the children’s fine motor skills, games to build the children’s listening and concentrating skills and developing their turn taking skills in preparation for school, musical activities and lots more.
We have a fantastic library with specially made ‘story bags’ that children are able to borrow to share at home. These have puppets that help engage the children to retell the story, building their language and comprehension skills. We also have ‘busy bags’ to borrow that enable the children to build their fine motor skills in preparation for writing in fun ways. For those moving on to school, there are maths and phonic packs to share together at home. Sensory bags with visual, audio and tactile resources to explore are also available.
We look forward to meeting new families and to showing you around our preschool.
