The nursery staff aim to help each child to reach their full potential. The children’s own interests influence the planning and the chosen topic. We do have an educational programme based on themes for the year taking into consideration the season, and various festivals. These are used as reference points. Primarily we are an English speaking nursery however we do use a moderate amount of the Welsh language. Children are very receptive to this.
Our 0-3 year groups use child hood development stages and the foundation phase profiles. Once the children reach the age of 3yrs the staff will plan activities based upon the foundation phase. However, we are now adopting the new educational framework which we aim to have embedded by 2022.
The four purposes of the curriculum are;
ambitious, capable learners, ready to learn throughout their lives.
enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work.
ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world.
healthy confident individuals and are ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.
All of our activities are about enhancing the learning experiences which enable children to be creative, imaginative and have fun whilst learning. Through appropriate focused activities your child will receive a solid foundation for the development of reading and writing. We will promote discovery and independence and place a greater emphasis on using the outdoor environment as a resource for children’s learning.
