**Discover, Explore, and Grow with Dragonflies: Fostering Curiosity and School Readiness**

 

Welcome to Dragonflies, where we believe that every child is a natural-born explorer, and learning is an exciting adventure! Our environment is thoughtfully designed to ignite the flames of curiosity in young minds, setting the stage for a lifelong love of learning.

 

**What to expect if your child is in Dragonflies? **

 

In Dragonflies, we understand that the early years of a child's life are crucial for their development. That's why we've created an environment that seamlessly blends play and education, nurturing children's inquisitiveness across the seven areas of learning outlined in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

 

**Seven Areas of Learning, One Thriving Environment: **

 

1. **Communication and Language**: Our engaging activities encourage children to express themselves, fostering strong communication skills from the very beginning.

 

2. **Physical Development**: Children develop their motor skills and physical confidence through active play and outdoor adventures.

 

3. **Personal, Social, and Emotional Development**: Building relationships and understanding emotions are key to our approach, preparing children for the social challenges ahead.

 

4. **Literacy**: Storytelling, phonics, and early reading are woven into our daily routines, laying the foundation for a lifelong love of books.

 

5. **Mathematics**: Counting, sorting, and problem-solving are explored through hands-on experiences, making math both fun and accessible.

 

6. **Understanding the World**: We encourage a natural curiosity about the world around us, from nature exploration to cultural discoveries.

 

7. **Expressive Arts and Design**: Creative expression is celebrated through art, music, and imaginative play, allowing children to unleash their creativity.

 

**School Readiness with a Difference:**

 

Dragonflies isn't just about preparing children for school but nurturing their unique potential. Our school readiness group goes beyond traditional approaches by incorporating each child's "next steps" in learning. We focus on:

 

- **Individualised Learning**: Tailored activities that meet each child's unique needs and interests.

 

- **Structured Routines**: Our daily schedules mimic those of reception classes, ensuring a smooth transition to school life.

 

- **Adult-Led Activities**: Guided sessions that encourage focus and participation while keeping the excitement of learning alive.

 

In Dragonflies, we know that childhood is a precious time filled with wonder and possibility. We provide a safe, stimulating, and supportive environment where children can spread their wings and soar. Join us on this incredible journey of exploration, growth, and readiness for the future!

 

Let curiosity take flight in Dragonflies - where every day is an adventure waiting to happen.
