Jumping Jacks pre school Bedford – provision for 2-5s

Play underpins all learning and development for young children. And Jumping Jacks promises a happy, active, fun and safe learning environment for all its toddlers and pre-schoolers.

Maximum Fun, Maximum Choice

Every session, your child gets to choose what they want to play – from fire-fighting in the role play room to building space ships, hunting for treasure in the garden, or bringing a character to life from their favourite book.

This “freeflow” way of playing, as recommended by OFSTED, together with our own “fusion learning” approach, where activities meld and blend, is a really fun, natural way to learn and lets your child progress at his or her own pace.

Curriculum & Learning Standards

Your child’s sessions with us are jam-packed with opportunities for learning. We’re registered to deliver the government’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework. This means that your child’s time with us is carefully structured, planned and supported and that we meet all the standards to ensure they learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe.

Every day children can explore exciting, inspirational activities and well-chosen equipment, toys and books. Because children learn at different rates and in different ways, our staff will be carefully observing, planning and supporting to make sure the three key learning areas – communication and language; physical development; and personal, social and emotional development – are covered in the best way, at the right speed for them.

As your child grows, they’ll discover more specific areas such as Literacy, Maths, understanding the World and Art and Design in a way that’s suited to your child’s individual needs and interests.

Regular Progress Reports for Parents

You will receive regular feedback about your child’s day, both verbally and in writing. Your child’s detailed, individual Record of Achievement can be viewed at any time and are sent home termly for parents to read, add in information, pictures and activities.

We carry out a formal EYFS progress check at between 2-3 years old. And, when your child is five, there will be a final EYFS proflle completed by teachers at school.
