The nursery provides your child with a lot of environmental stimulation in a loving and comfortable environment. The practitioners plan a vast range of activities daily. All activities are planned to follow your child’s unique needs and interests.
Care is taken to ensure that the activities are within the ability of the baby or child and are varied and promote all areas of development.
All children engage in the seven areas of learning and development, within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Children mostly develop the 3 prime areas first. These are:
Communication and language
Personal, social and emotional development
As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in the 4 specific areas. These are:
Understanding the world
Expressive art and design
These activities take place both indoors and outside
If you would like any more information on the Early Years Foundation Stage please feel free to ask.
A Typical activity in the baby-room would include body painting where the children get to explore mark making and textures, experience a variety of movement such as walking and rolling in paint.
There are many different activities in the big room depending on the age and ability of the child. One example activity is hidden numbers and shapes in a variety of textures and materials. The children are soon telling you which numbers and shapes they have found!
Children follow the ‘Read, Write, Ink’ scheme and they will have regular access to the use of their own dedicated computer which has extensive software for all ages. With additional use of leap pads.
