What do we do?

We offer a broad curriculum and a range of rich and exciting learning opportunities supported by qualified and experienced staff. We extend and challenge the children’s developmental needs through active learning and practical ‘hands on’ experiences.  The children are encouraged to plan activities, make choices, organise resources, discuss and review what they have done.  There are opportunities throughout the day for children to talk, listen and be listened to.

Your child’s key person looks after a key group of children and will ensure that your child’s learning and care is tailored to meet their individual needs.  They are also available to support you with your needs in guiding your child’s development at home.  They can signpost you to specialist members of our team and we can also help engage more specialist support if appropriate.

We offer a specialist Language Support Group for children who need a bit of extra help in developing their language and communication skills.

Your child’s key person plans following your child’s interests and regularly uses the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum Guidance and Development Matters as a framework. The following areas of learning are covered:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Physical development
  • Communication and language
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

You will be able to see plans for your children’s experiences, the activities they will engage in, the resources they will use and how adults support them, on display in the classrooms and the corridors. You may have some questions to ask or some ideas about how to support your children’s learning.  Click here to download EYFS Parents Guide
