About Gateway Brockhurst
Gateway Brockhurst accepts children from 2 years up to school age and a total of 24 children can attend at any one time. Parents and children are warmly welcomed each day and staff build warm, trusting and supportive relationships with both the children and their parents.
The pre-school offers several different age & developmentally appropriate areas which support the seven areas of learning & development of the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. This allows children to access resources independently and to develop their physical, communication, personal & social skills as they engage with their peers with support from the staff. Outside there is a large accessible play area with a wet weather surface which allows for use all year round. There is a climbing wall, a planting/digging area, a play house and plenty of space for children to run, ride bikes & scooters, play on the slides and climbing frame and be energetic!
Children have a sense of belonging which is demonstrated in the way they work with one another for example helping each other with putting coats on, taking turns to share toys, helping to tidy toys away. The children have clear rules and boundaries which they learn to follow over their time spent in pre-school. At group times staff tailor the learning requirements of an activity to the individual needs of the children. Children help with the preparation of food and drink for snack time, catering for any dietary requirements and are encouraged to wash their plate and cup when they have finished. Children develop well at Brockhurst and achieve good progress to enable them to be ready to move on to Primary school.
