Shaldon Pre-school believes in the importance of children learning through play. We provide child-orientated learning, giving the children a wide range of first-hand experiences so they can learn through discovery. Children are encouraged to choose their activities and make decisions, supported by the adults in the group.

Whilst we plan some activities and experiences to cater for children’s individual needs and stage of learning, enabling them to develop intellectually, creatively, physically, socially and emotionally, we also take advantage of spontaneous opportunities to enrich our curriculum and extend the children’s interest and knowledge.
