What Ofsted said about us:
"Staff are kind, caring and respond positively to children. They provide a welcoming and supportive environment for families. Children feel welcome and show that they are happy, confident learners. They form strong bonds with staff and settle quickly in the pre-school."
"Staff use precise assessments of children to provide activities and opportunities that help each child progress to their next steps in learning."
What parents say about us:
"Your caring and nurturing approach to children and parents have meant that we quickly felt confident in leaving our child for the first time, thank you."
"My child has become much more confident since starting at your pre-school."
"The staff have really worked with us in getting to know our son so that he settled into pre-school well, they kept me informed about his days and he comes home happy and smiling."
"Being from another nationality they have supported us so kindly with language and my child has started learning English words."
"My child loves coming to pre-school, he asks as soon as he wakes up if he can go."
"Our child has made lots of new friends and her confidence has grown, she’s always eager to tell me all about her day."
We promote self-esteem, celebrate individual success and reinforce positive attitudes and behaviour
At Trinity Pre-School we believe that it is important for each child to know that they are loved for themselves. We work closely with all children and their families to ensure each child has the best possible start with us and as a charity run pre-school we have the ability to be flexible and adaptable to children’s individual needs and requirements.
We have an excellent team of staff, with varying experiences and relevant childcare qualifications. As staff we practice a safe, community-oriented learning environment where each individual's uniqueness and personal gifts are honoured. Children develop positive relationships with themselves and others.
What we do at Trinity Pre-school looks and feels like play most of the time, but our excellent team of staff are subtly weaving in peace making, community-building and a respect for our natural environment.
There is a large amount of space both indoors and outside for children to play and have fun. We have 2 large pre-school rooms where a selection of free choice resources are available throughout the day, allowing children to use their own imagination and creativity. We have a large safe and secure pre-school garden where children can choose to go outside throughout the day to explore and play. We also have access to the school nature reserve where we run forest school sessions, led by our Manager Helen Seviour who is a fully qualified Forest School Leader.
At Trinity Pre-School we believe that children should be able to be in the natural environment as much as possible.
'Exposure to natural environments improves children’s cognitive development by improving their awareness, reasoning, and observational skills.’
We believe that children should be able to experience spontaneous play, co-operative problem solving, feeling comfortable in nature, develop empathy for other living things and enjoy moments of wonder and delight.
Our pre-school is based within Holy Trinity Church Centre and we have been running for over 20 years. We are very much a part of the local community. Trinity Pre-School Bradley Stoke seeks to serve the community by creating a safe, happy and nurturing child care experience. We value our links with the church and together we help strengthen a child’s individuality by supporting and encouraging them in all areas of learning and development. By working within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework we aim to provide the highest standards of preschool education and childcare for all from 2 ½ years to school age and we were awarded ‘Good’ in our last Ofsted inspection.
