Pre School Day Nursery Contact LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT

Learning Area’s

The aim is to ensure that every child is given the opportunity to learn through high quality play experiences. For additional information, please click on the link to the EYFS. (Early years foundation stage)

Play is vital for children. It helps them to understand the world around them and to develop socially and emotionally. It is through play that our children learn, develop at their own pace and have fun with adults who understand, support and care about them. We want the children we care for to feel secure, not pushed or pressured, and to have the confidence to deal with whatever life brings

Indoor Learning

The two story former Church building lactated in boothtown halifax has been carefully re designed with four connecting areas. We will assess for readiness as each child moves through the different stages of development and growth following the EYFS Framework. For children to have the best start in life they must have the right tools with which to learn. Each room has stimulating toys and equipment, each day is different and filled with learning, play and lots of fun. When you child joins us they will be introduced to their key-worker in each room. Each day you will be informed about your child's day in the nursery. We will work in partnership with parents and carers to ensure the daily routine for babies and children in our care accommodates the needs of the individual child and family, including meal times, snack times, rest, sleep, toileting and play.

Babies The baby room will provide a rich, stimulating and peaceful atmosphere filled with soft mats, colourful displays, toys, mobiles and music. Little ones will learn to crawl, walk, play, start to communicate and start to develop large and small motor skills. It is place where there are lots of cuddles and giggles where the baby feels very secure, exciting imaginative activities that will stimulate your baby’s imagination, communication, physical development as they gradually learn to explore the world around them.

Toddlers At this stage the children will start to refine their large and small motor skills, their emotional and social skills will develop with the formation of friendships. They will use meaningful language to communicate and their concentration, curiosity of the world and independence will grow. Activities are arranged on low shelving within easy reach, children at this stage like to learn by sitting on mats on the floor at a table or wherever they are naturally comfortable. This is the room to experience free play , group stories, singing sessions, sand and water play, building, puzzles, a role play corner, messy play are just a few of the activities your child will enjoy.

Pre – School The Area Takes up all of the first floor and will be divided up into particular areas of learning, such as a book corner, laptop table, maths, mark making, art & craft area, topic displays, cafe, small world play, etc which will help each child develop physically intellectually , emotionally , socially and with an awareness of different health issues. A wide range of planned activities are offered to challenge, stimulate and excite children to want to learn and discover about the world, as they flourish and become more confident and independent learners each day. These activities cover a broad spectrum that includes practical skills, co-ordination, sensorial, literacy, maths, I.C.T , science, history, geography, music, art, craft and design, personal health and cultural. There will be an emphasis on learning to love books, hearing stories , reading, recognising and writing letters , counting , number recognition and practical maths skills. The children will be encouraged to look after their belongings, put on their own coats, tidy up for themselves, listen quietly at certain times, learn about what will make their learning good and how to be resilient and resourceful in their learning.

Outdoor Learning

We believe passionately in the power of outdoor learning, taking the indoors, outdoors develops a positive attitude towards learning, making it fun, motivating and exciting. All the children play and learn in the nursery garden at least one time each day, Sometimes all the children are outside in the enclosed garden, including the babies who may be in prams, baby walkers or playing in the cosy corners, it is like one big family where everyone is having fun, socialising, learning, exploring and playing with a wide variety of resources. If activities are more differentiated such as forest school activities, gardening, learning ball skills, races or science investigations, children will use the gardens and grounds in smaller ability related groups.
