The nursery is an educational play based learning environment where children develop and learn through a programme of structured play activities and experiences. Each child’s progress is monitored and activities are carefully prepared to challenge and develop to meet their needs and support their next steps in learning. Staff
The Early Years Foundation Stage guidance states that “Every child deserves the best possible start in life and support, to fulfil their potential. We believe a child’s experiences in the early years has a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right and it provides the foundation for children to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up. When parents choose to use Early Years services they want to know the provision will keep their children safe and help them to thrive.
