Learning in EYFS

“We believe every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential – Together We’ll Succeed

We Aim…

  • To provide a caring, welcoming setting in which parents/carers and children feel safe, secure and have a sense of belonging.
  • To provide a stimulating and exciting environment that encourages children to play and learn from new experiences.
  • To provide opportunities for children to develop as individuals, become independent and develop enquiring minds.
  • To enable children to experience success and be satisfied in what they do.
  • To develop positive links between home, school, and the community.

How we will achieve this…

  • We will ensure our Nursery is safe, secure and offers high quality education for the children.
  • We will provide them with a variety of experiences and learning activities each day, based on their own interests and monitor their wellbeing and involvement to ensure they develop in each area of learning.
  • Children’s achievements will be celebrated and valued through positive praise and rewards.
  • Staff will be nurturing, sensitive and caring to all children’s needs.
  • Parents/carers will be given opportunities to have meetings about their child and can discuss any issues with staff on a day-to-day basis.
  • Each child will be given equal opportunities for development and treated as an individual regardless of gender, race, disability, cultural background, and social circumstances.

The varying rates of development between children confirm that they need to be given opportunities to develop through planned indoor and outdoor play. Through such activities, children will explore the environment, develop their motor skills, their ideas and take risks. In Nursery, your child is appropriately supervised, and it is our responsibility to address obvious safety issues. However, it is also recognised that risk-taking is an important element of play and physical development and occasional bumps and bruises may occur. Childhood is about falling and being helped to be brave, strong, and physically active.
