At West Wycombe Pre-School Playgroup we want to create a warm and safe environment in which our children can feel secure and learn in comfort and at their own pace; we understand the importance of treating each child as an individual, and we hope that these policies reflect this. When planning our procedures and policies we consider several government-approved documents including:

  • The Government’s strategy – Every Child Matters: Change for Children, where the aim is to provide support for every child to:
    1. Be healthy
    2. Stay safe
    3. Enjoy and achieve
    4. Make a positive contribution
    5. Achieve economic well-being
  • The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (2012)

These policies were agreed by the pre-school committee and staff but we are constantly reviewing and assessing our procedures, so please feel free to speak with the pre-school Supervisor or the Chairperson of the Committee if you have any comments to make or questions.
