Areas of Learning
Your child will mostly be taught through games and play.
We follow the Early Years curriculum and plan our activities around the different areas of learning according to each age group.
Communication and language development involves giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations.
Physical development involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food.
Personal, social and emotional development involves helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves, and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities.
Literacy development involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Children must be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest.
Mathematics involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems; and to describe shapes, spaces, and measurements.
Understanding the world involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.
Expressive arts and design involves enabling children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials, as well as providing opportunities and encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play, and design and technology.
Your child’s progress will be reviewed on a regular basis. When they are between 2 and 3 years old they will have a Two Year Check completed by their parent, Key Worker and Health Visitor. You will receive 6 monthly reports on how your child is developing. At the end of time at the nursery they will receive a leaving report that will be sent on to their new setting or school.
The assessment is based on observations made by the practitioners - your child will not be tested. We use Development Matters and Early Years Statutory Framework as a guidance.
