We plan broad and balanced experiences based on children's interests and the learning objectives in the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development (relationships, confidence, feelings)
  • Physical Development (movement, health, self-care)
  • Communication and Language (listening, understanding, speaking)
  • Literacy (reading, writing)
  • Mathematics (numbers, shapes, space, measures)
  • Understanding the World (people, the world, technology)
  • Expressive Arts and Design (using media and materials, imagination)

We assess your child’s progress against objectives. Future plans are informed by your child’s achievements and interests thus giving a more individualised learning experience.

There is an appropriate balance between free and structured play. Children are encouraged to become more independent in making their own choices in their learning.

We use 'Tapestry' online Learning Journals. A Baseline Assessment will be carried out 6-8 weeks after admission then each time your child's key worker makes an observation you will get a notification. You are able to add comments to your child's Learning Journal. A report will be added every 6 months detailing your child's acheivements.
