Executive Function

We are always eager to discover more about how our very young children learn and develop and so were intrigued to find out about 'Executive Function'.

Have to admit this doesn't sound very child orientated; sounds more like something to do with big corporate business! But it is a term that is used to describe a set of skills that underlie the capacity to plan ahead and meet goals, display self-control, follow instructions even when interrupted and the ability to stay focused.

This leads into children's ability to sit still, spend extended amounts of times at activities, remember routines and follow rules. If these skills are missing it can mean children will 'flit' from one activity to another and struggle to express their feelings appropriately.

These skills develop when children are aged between 3 and 5 years, and are followed by another spike during their adolescent years. Providing the right environment will encourage and strengthen these skills which will help children as they progress throughout their school life, taking exams and moving into adulthood.

And the great thing is that these skills can be enhanced and encouraged through a child's natural play. Lots of imaginary play and story telling help children to plan, play co-operatively and pay attention. Action songs and games can stimulate a child's ability to recall through repeated refrains. Mixing movement and singing can be complex by matching rhythm, words and actions which helps with focus, attention, memory and persistence. Quiet games can help with memory recall, following rules and multi-stepped instructions.

As carer's and parents we do all of this all of the time but understanding the effect that we can have on young children by the actions we take is astounding.

Activities Update

Activities Update

Parents to School Week
During the week commencing the 20th January we would like to invite parents into pre-school to get the chance to see what happens after you drop your child off! You will get the chance to see the activities that we provide, chat with your child’s key-person and maybe even grab a cuppa!

Parents are able to attend once during the week during a session that their child attends. Parents can visit from 9.15am - 11.00am and 12.15pm - 2.00pm. Whilst we would prefer that parents attend without younger siblings we appreciate that this may be tricky to organise. Parents are reminded, however, that any younger siblings in attendance remain the sole responsibility of the parent.

Inset Days
Our next TWO Inset Days will be MONDAY 24TH & TUESDAY 25TH FEBRUARY. On TUESDAY 25TH FEBRUARY we would like to invite all parents and children to come along and see us in our new premises at Sandiacre Scout Hut, Stanton Road, Sandiacre, NG10 5DD. Everyone is invited to attend between 10.00am and 2.00pm; you will have the chance to explore the new building, see how the activities will be set up, ask any questions and we will provide some drinks and nibbles for all!

We are now actively working to secure a new building within Sandiacre. Everyone is working hard to ensure that our new premises will meet all our needs and as soon as we can provide more details for parents we will do so.

All children aged 3 & 4 are eligible for the ‘Universal Entitlement’ of 15 hours government funding per week and some children will be eligible for an additional 15 hours per week under the ‘Extended Entitlement’ scheme. All funding starts the term following the child’s third birthday;

Tapestry
We would like to ask all parents to complete the ‘About Me’ page of their child’s profile. Please remember that parents can complete ‘Observations’ too...this is a great way for your child’s key-person to know a little more about what you and your child get up to outside of pre-school. This can in turn help us to ensure that we provide the best possible activities and resources that are most appropriate to your child.

Tapestry is also a great communication tool between pre-school and parents; staff can use ‘observations’ to let you know what your child is currently achieving and how you can help us to help them achieve their next steps. Parents can discuss their child’s development or anything else that they feel is relevant to their child’s time at pre-school.

Policies & Procedures
Our policies and procedures can be found on our website www.springfieldpreschool.co.uk these cover everything from safeguarding to absences to dropping off and collecting children to managing illnesses. Should you have any questions or wish to see a paper version of these please speak to Jayne.

Parent Committee AGM - Tuesday 1st October, 7pm
On Tuesday 1st October, at pre-school, at 7.00pm we will be holding our Annual General Meeting where we will be electing our committee for the forthcoming year.

In order for pre-school to open its doors we need to have a parent committee in place. The committee are there to oversee the operation of pre-school, to assist the management team and most importantly organise and run our fundraisers. We need a minimum of 5 committee members and of these there are three named roles - Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer. Should you wish to know more about being part of the committee please speak to Jayne who will be only too happy to chat and pass on any relevant information.

Without the support of our parents Springfield would not be what it is today. The role of our committee is vital to ensure the continued growth and development of pre-school and is a role very much appreciated by all of us involved with Springfield.

School Photographs – Wednesday 9th October
On Wednesday 9th October we will be visited by Tempest Photography for our annual pre-school photos. They offer a wide range of products from the usual photo packs to canvas wraps, acrylic prints, frames and even digital downloads. Their photographers specialise in visiting early years settings and take a variety of photos so that parents can choose the best for them. Parents will be provided with a small proof photo on the day and an order form. All orders placed will generate a commission of 20% for pre-school so not only do you get some lovely photos that make ideal Christmas presents you are also helping pre-school at the same time.

If your child attends pre-school on a Wednesday they will automatically have their photo taken unless we are advised otherwise.

If your child does not attend pre-school on a Wednesday, or you would like to include a sibling on the photo, please pick a time from the sheet that will be on the main door from 30th September.

Contacting Pre-School
You are able to contact pre-school between 8.30am and 3.30pm, Monday to Friday on 07960 983423. If you need to contact us outside of these hours then please use our email springfieldpreschool@hotmail.co.uk and we will respond as appropriate.
