Our setting aims to:
- provide high quality care and education for children primarily below statutory school age;
- work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop;
- add to the life and well-being of its local community; and
- offer children and their parents a service that promotes equality and values diversity.
Our Government Funding Options
Our setting is eligible for the Government's Nursery Education Grant (NEG). This offers funding to all 3 and 4 year olds.
The funding covers up to 15 hours per week, which can be used in a variety of ways, e.g. sessions or full days.
The funding starts the term after your child's third birthday, e.g. if they turn 3 at the start of September, they will not get the grant until the January Term.
This is a great offer from the government and many families are unaware of it; also, it is not a grant that depends on your income so everyone will receive it.
Our partnership with Families
Ultimately we are here for the benefit of the children who attend our setting; however, here at Just for Me we are aware of the importance that each child's family has, in terms of their learning. As such, we aim to provide parents/carers with as much support as possible, to enable them to contribute as effectively as they can, to their child's experiences.
Our Philosophy at Just For Me Preschool
Looking at each child as a unique individual and helping them to achieve the best out of their preschool experience!
There are several different ways to teach children and there are constant developments taking place in the field of education. We adopt our approach from the idea that as each child is uniquely different, you cannot expect that the same methods will work in the same way, for every child. Children learn at different paces and we believe in doing the most we can to meet each child at the level they're at and helping them to move on in realistic, achievable steps. This includes providing a wide range of stimulating and appropriate learning materials and activities.
