We provide children with experiences and support which will help them to develop a positive sense of themselves and of others; respect for others; social skills; and a positive disposition to learn. We aim to support each individual child’s emotional well-being in order to help them become confident in themselves and what they can do.
- Communication, Language and Literacy (Language)
We support and assist our children to further improve their skill set in communication, speaking and listening; reading and writing. They are provided with opportunities to use these skills in a range of situations and for a range of purposes.
- Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy (Mathematical)
We provide opportunities for the children to become confident and competent in learning and using key skills. These areas of learning include counting, sorting, matching, seeking patterns, making connections and recognising relationships, working with numbers, shapes and measures. The children’s understanding is developed through stories, songs, games and imaginative play.
- Knowledge and Understanding of the World (Cultural)
The children are supported in developing their knowledge, skills and understanding that help them to make sense of the world around them. We offer opportunities for them to use a range of tools safely; encounter creatures, people, plants and objects in their natural environments and in real life situations. They undertake practical ‘experiments’ and work with a range of materials.
- Physical Development
We encourage children’s physical development by providing opportunities for them to be active and interactive and to improve their skills of coordination, control manipulation and movement.
They are supported in developing an understanding of the importance of physical activity and making healthy choices.
- Creative Development
The children’s creativity is extended by supporting their curiosity, exploration and play. We provide opportunities for children to explore and share their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of art, music, imaginative and role play activities.
