Greenwood pre-school is part of the Connect Schools Academy Trust. We are a multi academy Trust which means we work together as a group of schools led by our Executive Head Teacher, Wendy Giles. Greenwood is a successful and popular pre-school that aims to be outstanding.

Our vision

Greenwood Pre-school strives to provide the children within our care with the best possible Early Years education in order to prepare them not just for school but for their future as lifelong learners. Our play-based curriculum is planned with exciting hands on activities that will develop children’s lively, imaginative and enquiring minds.

We want all of our children to start the next phase in their education with high levels of self-confidence and resilience. With this in mind we ensure that the staff team work effectively together to provide a stimulating and nurturing atmosphere where tolerance, respect and appreciation of the achievements and differences of others are at the very core of our ethos.

A personalised education

We recognise that all children are individuals and actively encourage this through spending quality time with them and their parents to discover what makes them unique.

Within the setting we operate a key worker system. This means that each child is assigned a key person when they first start within the setting. Your child’s key person will spend time with you and your child to establish an open and caring relationship.

Our planning is personalised to meet the individual needs of all of our children and is flexible enough to be adapted around a child’s interests and the serendipitous moments of a preschool child’s life. Your child’s key person will sensitively observe and monitor your children’s progress in order to accurately plan challenging and exciting learning opportunities to achieve your child’s developmental next steps.
