We follow the Early years Foundation Stage Curriculum in which seven areas are used to plan your child’s learning and activities. The professionals teaching and supporting your child make sure the activities are suited to your child’s unique needs.
Children in the EYFS learn by playing & exploring, being active and through creative & critical thinking which all takes place both indoors and outside. The EYFS Framework underpins everything we do and is firmly embedded throughout our practice each day.
Teaching is often done through play, where the child learns about subjects and people through games. We work with the children and the parents to ensure every child achieves their full potential.
We provide children with a wide range of activities including creative and messy play to encourage development in an enjoyable and stimulating way. The child has access to high quality, safe equipment, and an extensive range of resources according to age and ability.
Upon joining our nursery, your child will be issued with a Learning Journey. Over time, this will build up a picture of your child’s journey through the Early Years Foundation Stage framework.
Your child’s key person will add assessment documents to the Learning Journey which provide a record of your child’s learning and development during the time with us.
Briefly you will see your child’s stage of development and the activities they will be involved in next at the nursery. The Learning Journey will include direct observations, artwork, photographs, and home observations, which are used to provide your child’s key person with the relevant information required to impact your child’s learning and development. All this information is used to ensure we plan activities to fully engage your child, based on their current interests.
