About Us

We are registered with Ofsted to take children from 2.5 years to 5 years of age. Our staff ratios are 1 to 4 for 2 – 3 year olds and 1 to 8 for over 3’s. In addition, all staff hold relevant qualifications and continued professional development.

Our curriculum is based on the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (2014). The EYFS sets the standards, which help us ensure that children learn and develop well and they are kept healthy and safe. The EYFS also promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s “school readiness” and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that will provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

At Sharon Kindergarten, we believe that “through good quality play children learn to listen, concentrate, persist, create, discriminate, cooperate and to deal with materials, situations and other people.” These are all attributes necessary for learning both now and in the future. It has been substantiated, “that too early an approach to formal learning disadvantages many children and turns them off schooling to such an extent that they may become failures and drop outs in adolescence.”

It is well to remember that a happy and secure childhood is the most valuable thing that we can give our children. It will determine to a large extent the outcomes for our adult lives.

We are happy to welcome prospective parents and children and to show you our Kindergarten.

Classrooms and activities

Classrooms

Our classrooms feature distinct areas for role play, problem solving, discovery, creativity and language and literacy. The classrooms are large and bright and are arranged for the children’s comfort, security and enjoyment. Children are able to work at tables and/or mats on the floor where they are most comfortable. We have access to an outdoor playground with various equipment, as well as a soft play room with a climbing frame and balancing beams.
