Welcome to the online home of East Chinnock Under Fives Pre-school....

Parents as Partners
Our setting recognises parents as the first and most important educator of their children. Parents are regarded as members of our setting and have full participatory rights. These include being valued and respected, being kept informed and consulted, involved and included at all levels. As a community-led, voluntary-managed setting we also depend on the goodwill of parents and their involvement to keep going. Parents are very welcome to help at sessions on a rota basis; regular help may require CRB checks. However during your child's first weeks this can prove to be unsettling and may best be left for a while.
As part of the Group's policy to ensure its provision meets the needs of each individual child, we take account of any
special/additional needs a child may have and work to the requirements of the 1993 Education Act and the
Special Education Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice (2014).

We are registered with Ofsted to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage for Learning and Development through play.
