The Early Years Foundation Stage
Provision for the development and learning of children from birth to 5 years is guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
Our provision reflects the four overarching principles of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage:
A Unique Child
Every child is a unique child who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners, parents and carers.
Learning and Development
Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates.
The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
To get an understanding of the milestone please read 4children Parents Guide 2015.
As an Early Years provider we are regulated by Ofsted, and are subject to regular inspections. Our Ofsted number is: 133703.
We were last inspected in March 2015. Where we recieved a 'Good' overall rating. The published report can be read here.

Aprons will be provided for messy play.
Lunch time is a great oppurtunity for children to learn social skills. You can provide a healthy packed lunch or purchase a 2 course hot lunch. They cost £2.20, payable either in advance or on the day.
There is a choice of 3 main courses including vegetarian and Jacket Potato options. Food allergies and intolerances can also be accomodated.
As a registered charity The Cabin Pre-School is managed by a committee of parent/carer volunteers. Without this help we cannot operate.
The word 'Committee' can sound off putting, but we are really just a group of parents with a little time to give to Pre-School. It's not a huge commitment and you can volunteer for whatever role interests you most, either using the skills you already have or developing new ones you could add to your CV!
The committee works hand in hand with the Pre-School Manger and staff to ensure the smooth running of the Pre-School. We hold monthly meetings to plan fundraising events, check the budget remains on track and ensure that the needs of all children and staff are being met. It's a great way to get to know the staff better and to meet other parents.
Not only is being part of the committee a truly valuable role, it is also hugely rewarding and great fun. It gives you a real insight into what goes on behind the scenes at Pre-School as well as the opportunity to have a genuine impact on your child's early year's education.
If you are able to offer any time, make donations or general ideas, we would love to hear them but until then we look forward to your support at the next event.
Holiday club operates in both the Easter and Summer Holidays. It is run in conjunction with Woodcote Pre-School.
Open from 9am to 3pm to all local families with children aged 2½ through to 8 years.
Our next club is running from Monday 10th April through to Friday 21st APril (excluding bank holidays).
