About Us

Meadows is a small family run Pre School / Nursery operating under the EYFS and located in the rural village of Harefield in Middlesex. We are early years practitioners and provide quality care and education for children aged between 9 months and 5 years.

The school is situated inside the beautiful park known as Taylors Meadow and we have a lovely outdoor environment where children have complete free flow to the secure garden area where they can experiment in risky play in natures own classroom. Our outdoor play areas are well cared for with lovely green spaces, complete with a mud kitchen that the children love. Within the garden the children have the opportunity to grow flowers and vegetables.

We are lucky to have a woodland within the park where we regularly take the children to explore the natural environment.

Our Pre-School. Our Family. Our Community

All of our friendly staff at Meadows Pre School are looking forward to welcoming you and your child into our setting.

We are committed to looking after and educating your child in a caring and safe environment where the emphasis is on having fun whilst learning the desired skills in all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage. Our intake ranges from 9 months up to five years.

Early Years Foundation Stage

Personal, Social & Emotional Development

Mathematical Development

Expressive Art & Design

Understanding The World

PERSONAL, SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT

We encourage children to value themselves, respect difference in others and develop effective skills in communicating their thoughts and feelings.

Skilled and supportive adults are crucial to the effective delivery of PSE by promoting co-operative play and consideration to the needs of others as well as the important skill of negotiating as the children play and share toys.

We understand the importance of a warm supportive relationship with a key adult, someone who celebrates their successes and encourages them as they explore their environment and challenge themselves with new activities.

COMMUNICATION & LANGUAGE

Communicating and being with others helps children to build social relationships which provide opportunities for friendship, empathy and sharing emotions. The ability to communicate helps children to participate more fully in society. Communication in the Foundation Stage is broken down in to three separate skills – speaking, listening and attention and understanding.

LITERACY

As children develop speaking and listening skills they build the foundations for literacy, for making sense of visual and verbal signs and ultimately for reading and writing.

PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT

All children gain an understanding of the world around through movement and physical sensation.

MATHEMATICAL DEVELOPMENT

Through adult planned and child-initiated play opportunities we aim to give children a love of exploring mathematics and mathematical concepts.

UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD

People and communities

With a starting point of their own particular personal history, children begin to develop an awareness of differences within families, communities and traditions. They begin to appreciate that other children may well have different likes and dislikes to themselves.

The World

Children initially learn about their most immediate surroundings, before developing their knowledge and experience of the wider environment. Through practical experiences they learn about objects, materials and living things.

Technology

Children gain confidence in handling a range of technology to support and enhance their learning.

EXPRESSIVE ARTS AND DESIGN

Expressive Arts and Design encourages children to use all their senses, take risks, think flexibly, play with ideas and respond imaginatively.
