Resources for Parents

The Library

We operate a library system at our Pre-School.  In the entrance hall, you will find a table offering a selection of books and in addition a large bag full of other books.  These may be taken home and enjoyed with your child.  If you wish to borrow a book, write down your name and the name of the book in the notepad provided on the table.  Simply tick your name once the book has been returned.  

Once a month on a Friday, the Northamptonshire mobile library visits Pre-School. At each visit a different group of children are taken into the library with a member of staff (ratios are adhered to) and the children then choose some books to bring into Pre-School which they read over the next month.  


In the entrance hall you will find 4 different folders which parents are able to access:

  1. A variety of articles which you might find interesting to read e.g. how to potty train or how to motivate boys to write. 
  2. Under 5 magazine with all sorts of interesting articles and information about early years education, which all pre-schools get a copy of.
  3. Our policies, which help us to provide a high quality service.  The policies are reviewed annually, if you would like to add anything or make any comments then please let a member of staff or committee member know. 
  4. ‘How we implement the Early Years Foundation Stage’, this folder shows photographic evidence of how the curriculum is being delivered to the children within the Pre-School.  

Story Sacks

We are able to offer story sacks as an imaginative resource that families can borrow to use at home.  Each story sack is a large cloth bag containing a favourite children’s story book and additional props linked to the book, which help make sharing the book more interesting and engaging.  They are a fantastic way to spend time having fun with your child whilst providing them with a great foundation in early literacy skills and encouraging children to develop an early love of books.

Wow Board

We have in the entrance hall a board which is aimed at celebrating our children’s successes.  We would like parents to write down something that their child has achieved and place it on the board.  It may be anything you wish e.g. ate all their food up at tea time or had a dry night.  These can then be used and celebrated in Pre-School.
