2-3 Years

Within the 2-3 room we encourage children to be actively involved in the learning process.  We ensure all children feel welcome, safe and secure at Nursery.  Each child has their own child’s plan which is reviewed with parents every 3 months.

We motivate children to be independent, confident and successful learners. Children take part in planning, expressing their opinions, feelings.  Learning experiences are planned, responsive or spontaneous and meets the needs, age and staged each individual.

0-2 Years

Within the 0-2 room staff follow pre birth to three guidelines responding to all children’s needs and interests. Staff work closely with parents to create the best care for their child allowing them to become secure safe and confident within their new environment.

Each child benefits from a personalised child’s plan that allows staff to work alongside parents to review and assess children’s development using well being indicators.

All children are respected and supported to become successful learners.

 
 

3-5 Years

We provide a framework for planning that allows children to achieve. We have a clear and effective strategy for development and assessment of literacy, numeracy and health and well being.

Children are consulted within their learning and have opportunities to work collaboratively with staff in indentifying their own achievements and planning next steps. This is evidenced within our floorbooks and within wall displays. We have found this approach to planning provides children with responsibility in applying their developed skills.
