Indian Queens under fives has been within the village of Indian queens for about 45 years or more. Our purpose built elliot hut located in the recreation ground was opened to preschoolers in 2002.
Our large open plan room enables us to look after up to 24 children aged 2 - 4 at any one time. We have a ramp that leads into preschool and also a ramp that goes down into our newly refurbished garden area. Our preschool is run by a dedicated voluntary group of committee members made up of parents and relatives of the children at the setting.
The staff all work extremely hard and are constantly looking to improve on their knowledge and therefore take part in regular courses to increase their qualifications and improve their work ethics.
Following the EYFS we take pride in encouraging the children in our care to learn and develop at their own pace while enjoying all the wonderful toys and craft activities we have available to them. We record the children's development using the online learning journey TAPESTRY.
This is a secure app that allows parents and guardians to keep upto date with their childs developmental journey and also records the fun that the children have. It can reassure parents that their child is doing just fine at preschool.
Their work with my 4 year old has literally changed his life.
”Our Child started there in the Autumn of 2016 and was, to be honest, a bit of a handful and an unpredictable little boy. We queried if he was on the Autistic Spectrum, with his Mum and I having many worries, including mobility, potty training and playing with others.
Julie and her team, especially our child's key worker Kate, have seen a revelation. They dealt with our child with Compassion, care, honour and understanding. They were always open to try new approaches with many things and aspects of his behaviour and did so with seemingly endless patience.
My partner and I genuinely believe that our child would be no where near being as ready for the transition to infant school as he is, if it wasn't for the wonderfully dedicated team at Under Fives.“
You will always have our deepest Thanks.
Parents of the child.
