Toddler Room, 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 year olds

The period from birth to five is described as the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).  Our curriculum is planned around these goals, which are designed to help your child with their development and learning.   A Keyworker system is implemented and your child will be allocated to a member of staff when starting at the nursery.  We will record the progress of your child in an "Online Learning Journal".  We encourage parents to record comments and questions in the journal to help with the progress of your child. 

Baby Room, 0-1 1/2 year olds

We use individual teaching plans to enable us to help your child achieve these goals.  It is essential that they are given variety, taking in to account their particular interests and needs.  We use a large range of toys and activities to aid learning.

In the toddler room the children will be cared for to ensure they are happy and thriving. Their welfare is of paramount importance.  They are encouraged to progress in their learning through play, with the emphasis on language development and social skills.

Each child's development will be tracked and monitored whilst working through the EYFS curriculum, to ensure that when they leave the nursery they are more than ready for their next journey at school. and will be confident, independent learners.

Pre-School, 3 1/2 - 5 year olds

Shingle pit

We have a ratio of 1 adult per 3 children in the baby room. This is to ensure that each child is

given as much attention as needed, to help them feel as safe and secure as they do at home. Developmental milestones are monitored and assessed to ensure the best outcomes are achieved.

The majority of children's learning is centered around activities called 'play'.  We have created an extensive list of play activities and experiences that relate to these 'learning goals'.
