We are very pleased to announce that the pre-school was rated Outstanding at the Ofsted Inspection of December 5th 2019. Please follow this link to read the Southdown Methodist Pre-School Ofsted Report 2019.
At the pre-school craft table we always provide planned activities that children of all abilities and interests can enjoy but our main priority is to encourage and support children in having their own ideas, independently accessing resources and taking absolute pride in their creations whether big, small, sticky, messy, identifiable or not. Today in Miami someone paid £90,000 at auction for a banana gaffer taped to a wall but in Southdown Methodist Pre-School, Harpenden the children created their own 'priceless' art galley.
The Pre-School received notification today that an Ofsted Inspection will take place during the morning of Thursday 5th December, from 09:00 onwards. We would like to offer all parents / carers of pre-school children the opportunity to remain after drop off and share your experiences of pre-school with the Ofsted Inspector. If you are unable to stay you are welcome to return early at pick up. Alternatively you can email your comments to the pre-school, leave them in the "Comments Box' in reception, or pass them on to your pre-school parent representatives. We would be grateful for as many comments as possible.
