Our Little Learners - Spacious Rooms

The Little Learners

At this age children are naturally inquisitive and eager to participate in new and exciting activities. We encourage this by providing just the right amount of resources and learning activities so that children can learn through play and discovery.

Our aim is to ensure that each day is as fun packed as the last.

Each child is treated as an individual and our perceptive and skilful staff through regular observations understand your child’s needs and interests, they plan play opportunities, resources and interactions appropriate to each child such as – potty training, colours, numbers, sharing skills, social skills, learning manners, right from wrong and language development.

Children access the decking area from this room as well as the outdoor play area every day.

The Two Year Progress Check

The Early Years Foundation Stage requires us as a nursery to carry out a progress check when your child is two. This will be a written summary of how your child is progressing in the 3 prime areas of Learning:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal Social and Emotional Development.

This will highlight areas where your child is progressing well and any areas where they may need additional support.

When you have your appointment for your child’s two-year check please let us know so that we can ensure this progress check document is ready.
