Our classes

Learning and development are both extended via a wide variety of activities, encouraged in spontaneous, structured, group and individual based, play settings within the environment.

We believe that our techniques are comprehensive, unique and progressive. Continuous observations made as the children play, are the foundation for our Individual Education Plans that follow and extend the development of every child within the nursery.

All themes, observations, Long, Medium, and Short term Plans are referenced against the statutory and non-statutory standards set by the EYFS. In this way we are able to monitor the progress of every individual and develop our plans further, to ensure targeted needs are met.

Every child has their own individual Profile where these observations, and records are kept. This comprehensive record follows the child via their key person, through the nursery and ultimately onto school.
