Look out world here we come!

The world is full of questions and interests, we have created inviting and exciting environments to stimulate inquisitive little minds both in and out doors providing children with the opportunities to take risks, explore and investigate safely.  We implement and observe play experiences which parents can access through their individual Parents Zone login.

As a childcare provider we are required to deliver an educational curriculum that meets the government standard of the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage). This ensures each child understands things like numbers, letters, social skills and reaches specific learning goals ahead of school. Within our curriculum we cover the seven areas of learning  whilst taking note of children’s interests and individual needs on a daily basis. However, we want children to arrive at school with much more than that…


Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right. Good parenting and high-quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.

We aim to provide a relevant, broad and balanced curriculum, which is delivered by staff that are fully conversant with the curriculum requirements.

This will include:

  • Provision for the different starting points from which children develop their learning, building on what they can already do.
  • Relevant and appropriate content that matches the different levels of young children’s needs, interest and learning styles.
  • Planned and purposeful activities that provide opportunities for both teaching and learning, both indoors and outdoors.

We recognise that children develop rapidly in the early years both physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. We aim to offer provision that supports and extends knowledge, skills understanding and confidence. In developing a curriculum, we recognise that the following principles should be adhered to:

  • Each child will feel included, secure and valued; no child will be excluded or disadvantaged because of ethnicity, culture, home language, family background, special educational needs, gender or ability.
  • Experiences offered to the children will build on what they can already do.
  • Staff will encourage a positive attitude and disposition to learn.
  • Staff will emphasise the process not the end product.
  • Children will be allowed time to become engrossed, work in depth and complete activities to their own satisfaction.
  • Varied appropriate interventions by staff will engage children and help extend their learning.
  • The knowledge and expertise of parents and other adults are used to support the learning opportunities provided by the setting.
  • The learning environment will continually provide the structure for children to explore, experience, plan and make decisions for themselves, enabling them to learn, develop and make good progress.

Communication and Language

Communication and language development involves giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment, to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves, and to speak and listen in a range of situations.


Physical Development 

Physical development involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food and personal hygiene.


Personal, Social and Emotional Development 

Personal, social and emotional development involves helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves, and others, to form positive relationships and develop respect for others, to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings, to understand appropriate behaviour in groups, and to have confidence in their own abilities.



Mathematics involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, positional language, and to describe shapes, patterns, spaces and measures.



Literacy development involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin form recognisable letters. Children must be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest.


Expressive Art and Design 

Expressive arts and design involves enabling children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials, as well as providing opportunities and encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play, and design and technology.


Knowledge and Understanding the World 

Understanding the world involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places and the environment which includes local events and multicultural celebrations.
