In our Nursery we strive to ensure that the children who enter our care recieve the well-rounded education they deserve. Our curriculum consists of everything you would want your child to experience, learn and be able to do. It must meet the requirements of the educational programmes in the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). These are included throughout Development Matters for ease of reference.


The Characteristics of Effective Learning

These points are always at the forefront of the practitioners mind, and they help to shape what your child will be doing to ensure they make progress with us. 

Playing and exploring – children investigate and experience things,
and ‘have a go’
Active learning – children concentrate and keep on trying if they
encounter difficulties, and enjoy achievements
Creating and thinking critically – children have and develop their own
ideas, make links between ideas, and develop strategies for doing things



7 Areas of Learning

In Nursery we teach the 7 areas of learning, which is an umbrella term for each of the subjects we cover. In reality your child will access several of these at once while engaging with the environment whilst with us. Having a well-set up environment will help to make sure that your child has every opportunity to develop skills in each of these areas.
