Welcome to Nursery

The Early Years Curriculum is made up of seven areas of learning: three prime areas and four specific areas. In Nursery we primarily focus upon Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. The four cornerstones of our curriculum are based around; the unique child, building positive relationships, creating an enabling environment and promoting learning and development. Throughout the year, children will have the opportunity to engage in play based learning through many different experiences.

We plan both adult and child led activities to build upon the children’s interests. We build up a picture of each child’s prior learning and extend this to develop their skills socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually.  To find out more, please click on the links below.

In order to be successful life long learners, children need to develop the characteristics of effective learning. Click on the link to find out more.

Characteristics of Effective Learning

We use the Development Matters age bands to identify small steps, building towards the Early Learning Goal at the end of Reception.
