Learning and Development

During the first five years of their life, your child will develop more rapidly than at any other time.

We work to ensure that your child will achieve their full potential and make the most of their talents and abilities to give them the best possible start to life.

Children are natural learners from birth and we recognise that every child will learn and develop differently. Each child is tracked individually by their key person, who assesses their stage of development, personal interests and needs in order to plan an enjoyable day based around them. The activities your child enjoys are designed to support their next steps and our learning programme is based around games and fun activities so that children can develop in a happy environment with their friends.

An experienced team helping your child to grow

Our team of childcare professionals have years of experience in supporting children to reach their full potential. They are constantly undergoing new training to ensure that we are using the latest techniques and understanding to help your child grow. We have many longstanding members of staff, meaning that they are able to follow your child’s progress as they develop into confident youngsters.

Working closely with you as your child develops

We also know that your child’s development isn’t just confined to their time at nursery, so we work closely with you to understand your child’s individual wants, needs and progress at home. Using this information, we are able to better support your child in their development at nursery.

Supporting each child's development

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework, published by the Department for Education. The Framework looks to promote development in seven areas of learning.

We focus on the following areas of development:

Personal, social and emotional development
Physical development
Communication and language
Understanding the world
Expressive art and design

More information about the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework is available from the Foundation Years website.
