Jack's Preschool​​

Jack's  Pre-school is set in the rural Somerset countryside. With access to outdoor learning, Forest School and creative spaces. Children are encouraged to learn and play, get muddy and explore with a curriculum based on exploration and imagination.

At Jack’s Pre-school our aim is to create a learning environment and build relationships which support, enhance and invite a child’s curiosity, confidence and individual competency to flourish.

We aim to work collaboratively with parents and carers to encourage independent, enthusiastic learners who thrive and reach their full potential. It is our intent that children who enter our Early Years Provision begin their lifelong learning journey by developing physically, verbally, cognitively and emotionally whilst also embedding a positive attitude to school and a love of learning.

Early Years education is about how children learn as well as what they learn. Children need opportunities to develop their own play and independent exploration. These opportunities should be enjoyable and motivating. They also need adults to ‘scaffold’ their learning by giving them just enough help to achieve something they couldn’t do independently. We encourage independence through extending child-led activities within an intentionally planned environment, and carefully planned experiences and challenges. The adults role as a facilitator ensure that children receive high quality interactions, which extend their knowledge, skills and understanding.

Outdoor Learning

Now more than ever, we must recognise the importance of outdoor play when it comes to the impact it has on early years development.

Not only does it act as an integral part of a child's learning opportunities, but it can help massively benefit children's mental and physical health and wellbeing.  

Mental health issues amongst children are rapidly on the rise, so it's important for us to find ways to combat this, ensuring that mental wellbeing is at the forefront of children’s learning, through early years and beyond. - Early Learning Alliance June 2022 

Here at Jack's Preschool we actively encourage the children to engage with nature and offer opportunities for continuous provision outdoors at all times. With the new canopy on the back of the pre-school and a gate linking directly to the school field and Forest School, we are able to offer the children access and activities which promote a love and respect for the environment as well as safeguarding their development and mental health. 

The children attending Jack's preschool graduate with respect for the environment, resilience for life's challenges and a love of learning.
