The Nursery aims to facilitate the child's experiences by having an open and structured environment that allows free scope for creativity and expression.
From an early stage the children are offered activities that are stimulating and challenging. Our philosophy is to ensure that each child and their work are accorded full respect.
The curriculum is designed and delivered using themes, which incorporates the wider world of science and the environment.
Every child works within the Early Years Foundation Stage footprint appropriate to their individual stage of development. For more information and explanation look at this document below, provided by foundationyears.org.uk
Long term planning – provides an overview of the areas/themes to be covered during the coming year.
Medium term planning – provides a mind map of a particular area/ theme.
Short term planning – provides the details of activities to be undertaken during the coming months. The children have an active input into the planning process and their ideas and interests are reflected in all areas of interest.
Each area of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum is evaluated and assessed according to the child's development stage.
We maintain the necessary records, policies and procedures that are required for efficient and safe management of the Nursery. Individual child's records are shared with the parent/carers.
We keep developmental progress reports on the children and these follow them during their time at the Nursery.
This information is informative rather than competitive and the parent/carers are invited to attend regular meetings to discuss their child's progress.
