‘Children grow in confidence and quickly gain the skills they need for their future learning. They learn to get along well together and show concern for their friends.’  2019 Ofsted report

The staff team are led by our Early Years Practitioner and operate at a higher than average adult to child ratio. The nursery benefits from a large open-planned space with a high ceiling that provides lots of natural light. The space is divided into different learning areas to support free play and the delivery of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework which supports each child’s development and learning.

Staff get to know children well and make accurate assessments of their development. They monitor their progress closely and quickly identify where children are doing well and where they may need more help. They put support in place and use any additional funding well to help children catch up where appropriate. 2019 Ofsted report

Themed activities planned for each half term support growth and development in an environment of learning through play covering all key EYFS areas; communication and language, physical development, personal, social and emotional development, literacy, mathematics, understanding the world; and expressive arts and design.

In addition, children make use of a sensory room, ball pool and soft play space and outside learning area.

We use an online platform called Tapestry to document each child’s personal learning journey with photos, video observations and comments in line with the EYFS building a record of their progress.  Individual logins allow parents and carers to view and comment as their child develops and learns.
