Supportive Learning

Supportive Learning

We want our nursery to be the best, which is why attracting and retaining the best staff is paramount. Our staff are crucial in providing a memorable nursery experience and our aim is to offer them the best training opportunities to support our childcare and education philosophy.

Our nursery staff are focused on providing fun and education, and they will work to ensure your child develops as an individual, whilst helping to nurture and encourage learning through discovery and enjoyment. We expect all our staff to engage in skilful and sensitive interactions to support a child’s learning.

This ensures that play opportunities, resources and interactions indoors and outdoors are appropriate to the level of competence and maturity of the child.

Curriculum

Children learn individually and with others through play. We offer our children a play-based curriculum which supports all aspects of their learning and development. It encourages their in-built curiosity and desire to make sense of the world around them and helps them to discover that learning is interesting and fun. This is vitally important if children are going to remain keen learners for the rest of their lives.

We deliver both the Birth to Three Curriculum and the Curriculum for Excellence in a number of ways through:

  • construction and small world play
  • treasure baskets that contain a variety of different objects to help stimulate babies’ senses
  • large and fine motor skills and experiences
  • literacy and numeracy skills
  • role play and imaginative opportunities
  • water, sand and malleable experiences
  • stories, rhymes and songs
  • mark-making - the marks that children make through a range of media, such as paint, water, sand, pencils and the meanings they give them
  • creative workshops
  • outdoor opportunities
  • exploring and investigating science and nature
  • dance, music and sensory experiences
