Background

Micheldever and Stratton Pre-school is based at the Village Hall in East Stratton and serves primarily the communities of East and West Stratton, Micheldever, Micheldever Station, Stoke Charity and surrounding areas.  It has very strong links with the community in Micheldever and, in particular, with the village school.

Since September 2014 the pre-school has been accepting children from their 2nd birthday (see The Pre-school page for further information).

Ethos

The pre-school follows the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (2017) and Early Years outcomes (September 2013) and believes that –

  • every child matters and is an individual;
  • the pre-school should be a safe and secure environment so that everyone in the setting can flourish;
  • the pre-school environment should be stimulating and full of inspiration; and
  • young children learn best through play based experiences.

‘It has a very welcoming feel to both parents and children’ (parents survey January 2018). 

Forest School

The deputy pre-school leader is currently training as a Forest School practitioner and the pre-school offers a regular weekly Forest School session as part of the continuous provision. Refer to the Outdoor learning page for more information.

Parent Survey
