04. Educational Program

We aim to provide social emotional and personal development in a friendly and caring atmosphere. We teach manners, good behavior and justice, language and literacy through a progressive program of our own and using the development matters curriculum. We are currently working with the every child matters document that came in to effect in 2003 and replaced current legislative standards along with the EYFS 2012. This helped all staff to gain awareness and make a smooth transition. Our approach is very holistic with 50% of education learning though experience outside.

Activities

Games and group activities we employ enhance physical and social development, while creative development is gained using construction toys, imaginative play and a wide assortment of materials, toys, puzzles and books. We will also make best use of the facilities around us this means will we leave the premises each day, appropriate risk assessment willing.
