Mission Statement

A setting that allows parents to bring their children in; knowing that they will be safe, for play, interaction, and a solid introduction to the world of their education. With the right amount of input and faith in what individual children can achieve, with the use of self-exploration, the support of their peers and adults, all children here can achieve remarkable things - socially, emotionally and educationally.

Greetings from the Director ~ Winter 2016

Chantelle MasonI'd like to welcome all the families at Just for Me Preschool; those that have just joined us and the families who are returning after the summer. Just for Me Preschool recently celebrated its 9th birthday on the 17th of September and this was celebrated with balloons and cakes for staff and children, as well as an open day for the local community. Over the past nine years, the preschool has changed in so many different ways. I have been blessed to have met some lovely people and both myself and my team have had the pleasure of being a part of so many lives. Over the last couple of years, we have put several different practices into place, in order to improve the services we provide to you and your children here at Just for Me. This has required a huge amount of patience and hard work from not only myself, but the whole staff team. I am proud of the team that I have here and over the past few months in particular, I have really witnessed a sincere commitment to providing high quality care and education for the children, that goes beyond just ‘doing their job’.

On the 22nd September we had our Ofsted Inspection. Ofsted is the regulatory body that inspects and approves all childcare settings and inspections are carried out every few years to make sure we are doing what we are expected to. The inspection looks at different aspects, including our paperwork, how well we manage our staff, how we support children and families, how we encourage children to develop, as well as much more. I am extremely proud to say that after our inspection, we were awarded a 'GOOD' rating by Ofsted! This is definitely a reflection of the hard work put in by all of us and I know we will continue to do well. A copy of the report is on our noticeboard and parents can also find it on the Ofsted.gov.uk website or you can download the report here.

Working in partnership with families is crucial, not only to our vision, but also to the development of your children. The relationships we develop with the children allow them to feel safe; whether this is with their own Key Person, or at times with a different team member. We have children who choose to share concerns with an adult, and similarly we have children who may not have the language to express their concerns, but will always seek out a specific member of the team for comfort. We are very proud of the bonds we have with the children at our setting and have often been told by both parents and members of our team, that we have a ‘family’ feel at our setting. At Just for Me, each individual child seen as unique and on their own journey through education. I have always been proud of the diversity at our setting; which is reflected amongst our staff, children and resources. More recently we have incorporated the British values, which reinforce mutual respect for others, a tolerance for other faiths, cultures and backgrounds, being able to say how you feel or what you want, and an understanding of wrong and right. We reflect these in all that we do at Just for Me.

As we begin to move into the last few months of the year, many people will begin to reflect on this year and will start to think of all that they want to achieve in 2017. Everyone has things they want to achieve, no matter how big or how small. As human beings, we are good at talking ourselves out of doing something that we know we need to do; something that can bring great things! it is natural to feel fear; but sometimes we need to learn how to feel it....and do it anyway! We also need to be active and not just sit and wait for things to happen. My faith has never allowed me to give up on things I really want, including this preschool, despite how difficult life has seemed. I believe it's important to step out sometimes, set yourself a goal, work hard and make that dream a reality! Surround yourself with positive influences and people that will encourage you; but most of all, believe in what YOU can do. I look forward to hearing about some of those things....

All the best, from Chantelle Mason - Director

Just For Me Preschool is in Greenford
in the London Borough of Ealing.

Here is our Motto, it was created in 2006, long before Just For Me Preschool opened:

'Looking at each child as a unique individual and helping them achieve the best out of their preschool experience'

We pride ourselves on doing just what our motto says - and also valuing the welfare and development of each child, treating and respecting them as individuals whose needs must be catered for.

This is reflected in way we plan, interact with and care for the children and their families. Each child's journey is different and therefore our approach is holistic, in that it is not solely about social skills or academic achievement; rather the whole invaluable experience of early childhood......

I hope our website answers all your questions. Do feel free to contact me personally about any matter or to arrange a visit of our facilities. You can even start the registration process online.
