West Chinnock Playschool was formed in 1999 by a committed group of parents keen to provide pre-school education and fun for under fives. It continues to be a committee managed and run as a charitable organisation.
Play leader Denise Cox has been with us since the beginning. With the help and support of her staff, Denise plans and supervises learning through play for children aged between two to four years, closely monitoring their progress and gently guiding their development.
The playschool is situated within the main school building of West Chinnock Primary School and benefits from the wonderful facilities and exceptional rural location.
Playschool staff have close ties to both West Chinnock and Norton sub Hamdon primary schools. Working alongside Early Years staff, activities are co-ordinated with both schools curricula to ensure that the transition to school is a happy one.
Activities are child centred, focusing on learning through play, for example; P.E. music, dance, rhyme, song, wellie walks, role play, cooking, painting, sand and water play, and construction. Resources include a wide selection of books and toys encouraging creativity and early maths and language skills.
Each child is appointed a keyworker who will observe their progress and keep parents up-to-date with their development and any issues that may arise. Every child is encouraged to reach their full potential according to their age, ability and stage of development in all areas of early years education.
