Lanterns Schools have been designed to the highest safety standards and the equipment we use has EEC/British Standards approval. Our high staff to pupil ratio ensures close supervision and a trained first aider is on hand if necessary. Comings and goings are monitored at all times by the reception area and no unauthorized person can gain access to the premises.
The Caring Side…
Happy children are confident children when they feel safe and loved. The schools employs qualified staff on the basis of their warmth towards young children. They all understand that the way they talk, encourage, praise and support will influence your child’s self-esteem.
We respect the individual needs of each child and are fully committed to achieving an environment which will provide equal opportunity for all children irrespective of race, gender or culture. We work closely with you to ensure the fullest understanding of your child.
Play is a natural part of a child’s life as necessary to development as the food they eat. Play provides the basis for a child’s learning, and through play activities and toys they acquire skills such as holding and using objects, control of the body, developing the abilities to communicate and an understanding of how things work.
Play should always be pleasurable and rewarding. Our carefully selected and extensive resources enable your child to experiment and explore and to grow in understanding.
We encourage purposeful play as they most important tool for learning during these early years.
Lanterns Schools offer a learning programme which includes a whole range of experience and concepts which children can explore in a safe stimulating environment. Reading, writing and number skills are taught with each child receiving individual attention, as well as sharing learning experience in small groups. Every enquiring mind is able to develop at its own pace.
Through art, drama, music and movement we encourage creativity and imagination.
Lanterns Schools certainly have a very unique timetable to offer children under 5 years. Especially with the help of our Art Workshop and Gallery with our artist in residence and the wonderful opportunity of having an outside garden and close access to Mudchute Farm and Mudchute Park. Your child is special and deserves the best and you deserve to feel secure in knowing that he or she is safe, cared for, learning and enjoying all these wonderful opportunities Lanterns can offer.
