Broomhill Preschool Playgroup is a charity which is run by a volunteer committee of parents and trained dedicated staff working together as a team. Behind every successful charity run preschool is a strong committee of parents who get involved and help.
The pre-school is a self-financing, non-profit making local venture and our committee are very active and dedicated to fundraising. We hold various events during the year to raise vital funds for our pre-school and always welcome parent/carer involvement.
Our children are in the care of a qualified Supervisor with a NVQ level 4 and a Deputy Supervisor who is qualified with a NVQ Level 3. The Deputy is also responsible for co-ordinating the Rising 4/5’s sessions. We have a designated Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) and Child Protection Officers. Our remaining staff are qualified to NVQ level 3 and 2 and our Kitchen staff attend regular Food & Hygiene training.
Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
At the pre-school we work towards the commitments of the EYFS. The EYFS covers a child’s developmental needs from birth to 5 years (the end of the reception year at school). There is a detailed list of developmental matters which helps the staff ensure that the planning meets your child’s individual needs. Planning is done on a weekly basis and incorporates a wide variety of topics, activities and learning objectives based around the seven areas of the EYFS.
