I aim to provide children with a wide and varied range of activities and experiences to make learning and developing fun.
To promote development, learning and wellbeing, I provide activities and experiences using the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. Activities are planned within the framework to promote:-
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Expressive Arts and Design
  • Understanding the World
Some of the activities children in my care enjoy and experience will be playing outdoors, outings at local parks, playgroups, painting, cooking, drawing, craft making and play dough, role play, construction, stories, puppets, music and movement, sand, water and having fun! 
All activities are based upon each child’s current stage of development. Regular assessments will be carried out so parents/carers know how their child is progressing, new activities are then planned to further your child’s development.All children are individual and are encouraged to learn and develop at their own level and ability.
