ABOUT ME AND MY SETTING
My name is Lisa Cole and I am married to Simon with whom I have four children of my own who are aged from new-born to 10 years old.
I have been Ofsted registered since 2013 and have been graded GOOD in 2016. (Please find a link to my Ofsted report by clicking here). I enjoy helping children develop whilst having fun using the Early Years Foundation Programme. Please click here to download some information about the EYFS - EYFS Information
I believe in providing a wide range of Early Years activities where learning can be achieved through play. The programme is about children getting ready for school while learning and developing as social individuals. The children get to be expressive and imaginative playing their own games or ones led by an adult, they talk to each other and to adults about their games which helps literacy, speaking and listening. Children learn to share and take turns and discuss other children’s ideas, helping their emotional and social development. For example, they can learn about maths whilst playing ‘shop’ and find out about other cultures and traditions and what is similar and different about people. Dressing up and role playing also helps with physical development, where they are handling many everyday objects with confidence and recognition and this helps balance and co-ordination moving about the setting.
This is a non-smoking residence and my husband is not at home usually during the working day unless he has time off work. I do not keep any animals at my setting.
