Children learn by doing and the emphasis on play is fundamental in the teaching of all curriculum subjects. We believe that children thrive and learn best through play, in a broad, diverse and stimulating curriculum.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS) at Nursery and plan a wide range of activities to encourage exploration, discovery and learning across the 3 Prime and 4 Specific Areas of the EYFS. The areas of the curriculum are:

Prime Areas

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

  • Physical Development

  • Communication and Language

  • Specific Areas

  • Literacy

  • Mathematics

  • Understanding the World

  • Expressive Arts and Design

We operate a learning through play policy and our staff are there to nurture, support encourage and provide guidance where necessary, allowing your child to build on their existing skills through a careful process of Observation, Interaction, Assessment and Planning.
