At Tickleford Preschool, we provide children with the fantastic opportunity to explore, discover and grow together on a daily basis. Our free flow ethos allow children the opportunity to investigate all areas of our preschool at a pace that they desire.
We are very lucky to have a spacious and secure outdoor area which is located in a wooded area. The children have the opportunity to experience daily outings around our local area allowing them to explore both the built and the natural environment. Our outdoor learning programme “Tickleford Preschool Outdoor Explorers” take children on a new adventure every day. Our children and staff visit the local shop, library, allotment and residential care home as well as visiting Woolston via the local bus. We have pet chickens at our allotment in which the children show great love, care and concern for when collecting their eggs. Every outing that the children go on, develops their knowledge of understanding the world. The children are able to talk about the things that they have observed and can comment and ask questions about aspects of the world. We sought permission from the parents and risk assess every journey and the places that we are visiting. Our staff and children love our adventures and look forward to each one. The parents love hearing what their excited children got up to that day.
