Example Themes/ Festivals:
The children take part in a wide range of age adapted activities both indoors and in our garden linked to each monthly theme. These themes are always flexible, we encourage spontaneous discussions and ideas from the children as much as possible.
Once each child has started to settle into the nursery they will be given a Key Person. This is a member of our team who is responsible for;
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the standards for the development and welfare of children, which all Childcare Providers must adhere to.
This ensures each child is learning/developing at a steady pace, and keeping the children healthy and safe. It is about giving each child a broad range of knowledge and skills as a foundation for future progress throughout school and on to later life.
Prime areas – what we focus on supporting each child with from birth to 2 years
Specific Areas – What we support each child with in addition to the prime areas from 2-5years
