Across the Early Years, we endeavour to meet our children’s needs through a play based curriculum, which challenges, encourages and inspires the children every day. Active learning is embedded in what we do. Our aim is to provide enriching activities for children to develop their creative and critical thinking skills. We plan activities around the needs and interests of each unique child whilst working in partnership with parents/carers. We believe every child deserves the best start in life and support this to enable them to fulfil their potential.

Helping your child to settle in

When your child is due to start, you and your child will be invited to attend some settling in sessions. Our policy is to offer a minimum of two settling in sessions, these are usually shorter in length than their normal sessions. The first of these sessions provides the ideal opportunity for you to discuss your child’s routine, as well as time to ask any questions and share information about your child’s likes and dislikes. During this first session we provide you with a form called ‘All about Me’ which asks for important information about your child and your family. We hope that during the second session your child feels familiar with their new surroundings and that you feel confident to leave your child for a short while.

Fruit and Milk

We provide your child with a fruit snack mid- session. We like to encourage our children to try lots of different fruits. Please inform our Preschool staff if there are any foods which you would like your child to avoid, if they have any allergies or dietary requirements. 

Your child will need to bring a named water bottle for each session. If you wish for your child to have milk, our office staff will be happy to help you sign up for the ‘cool milk’ scheme.

School Uniform

At ‘Little Owls’ we encourage parents to provide their child with a Pre-School uniform. This allows the children to feel part of Rendell school and gives them a sense of belonging. ‘Little owls’ jumpers and polo-shirts can be purchased from Rosebuddies uniform suppliers in Loughborough.
