How We Work
At Shenley Church End Preschool, we are dedicated to creating a nurturing, stimulating and welcoming environment for all children. Our unique programs incorporate a variety of educational theories, while always keeping the child’s best interest in mind and allowing for hands-on, experiential learning.
Our team of highly trained and experienced staff works hard to support all our children in learning through play.
All our staff are fully trained early years educators or working towards , most staff are level 3 and above, fully police checked, have a certificate in First Aid, safeguarding and have attended a Food Safety and Hygiene course as basic practice our staff are always updating practice on educare courses to further their skills.
In our most recent Ofsted report in 2017 we achieved high standards in all areas.
We are a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance (PSLA) and, like other Pre-Schools, we are community based: drawing on and responsive to local families and needs.
We adhere to the government guidelines of promoting British values while embracing and celebrating our multi-cultural society. Some of the festivals we may celebrate throughout the year: Easter, Chinese New Year, Christmas, Diwali, Eid, Mother’s/ Father’s Day, St George’s Day.
A full list of the pre-school’s policies and procedures is always available in pre-school and copies are available on request
We are open every day, Monday through Friday, during term time, with two sessions every day. Session times are:
Morning:9.00 am to 12.00 pm Includes snack time: we offer milk or water to drink and encourage the children to sit at table for a fruit snack followed by songs. (Parents are asked to provide a piece of fruit every other session.)
Afternoon:12.00 pm to 3.00 pm Children bring their own packed lunch to eat after the registration period.With the option of all day (9 am – 3pm)
We accept children from the age of 2 years.
We try to make our admissions policy as fair as possible. Usually, we have space to take in every child on our waiting list. However, we can only have a maximum of 30 children per session.
We accept the government funding for 2, 3 and 4 year olds (both the universal 15 hours and the new 30 hours for 3 and 4 year olds).
Any sessions not covered by the government funding are payable by the parent/carer at the current rate of £13.50 a session.
