The work of the nursery

You will discover that when the children have settled in, they will work very hard. Our curriculum has been developed according to the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in the Foundation Stage and we are aware that our provision of a stimulating environment is necessary to develop their own individual skills.

By working in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere and showing the children natural affection, we feel they will become confident in our care and enjoy their time with us.

Children have already learned a good deal from you, by observing them playing and questioning about everything they see around them. In the nursery this learning will continue as new skills are acquired, and our nursery environment is organised to keep changing, to stimulate new ideas and effective learning situations. The children will learn more about the way reading, mathematics and writing are used in daily life and begin to experiment themselves using more expressive language to convey their ideas.

Conversation with the staff and other children is positively encouraged and we like the children to ask questions and express their ideas during all their activities, thereby developing their ability to understand and organise their varied experiences.

All children in nursery have an individual ‘learning locker’ this allows their work to be displayed and valued in our environment.

The progress your child makes is carefully monitored by the staff and we will be glad to discuss this with you. We use Tapesty as our online learning journal, you will be able to see your child’s learning and we encourage you to contribute to this so we can build a full picture of your child’s learning and development throughout their time with us.
