Children take part in individual and group activities. Most time is spent on child initiated learning which allows children to follow their interests. The staff create Learning Journeys which document the child’s development and are shared during the year with both children and parents/carers.
They also carry out assessments on your child to enable them to deliver an appropriate curriculum.
The main assessments will be on Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional development and Physical development.
Some activities your child will be accessing:
- Stories and Rhymes
- Imaginative Play
- Dance Activities
- Environmental Visits
- Outdoor Activities
The children are encouraged to be independent, to make choices, to respect themselves and others and to care for the world around them.
