Minster Lovell Playgroup is a community Playgroup where parents and carers can confidently leave their children secure in the knowledge that they will receive the highest standards of care and early years education. As a community based, voluntary managed setting, we depend on the good will of parents and their involvement to keep going.
The ethos underpinning all we do is ‘learning through play’. Our curriculum is child led with some adult led activities. We place a strong emphasis on language and books and plan our topics around core stories. We also follow children's interests in our planning.
We offer children a stimulating environment where their individuality is respected and valued. We promote all areas of the children’s learning and development with particular focus on the Prime Areas of Learning, (Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED), Physical Development (PD) and Communication and Language (CL)).
We work towards them becoming confident and independent both in their self care and approach to learning in preparation for their transition to Reception class. We do this by providing play activities appropriate for their stage of development in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage.
We welcome all children whatever their individual needs may be. All children have the right to be educated and to develop their full potential. We believe that having an inclusive policy benefits all children, and positively reflects the diversity of our society.
We listen to and work closely with families to meet the needs of all children and believe that ‘parents are children’s first and most enduring educators.’
