Delivering the Curriculum & Planning

We ensure that the children experience a varied Nursery day and that activities are varied and stimulating, we plan around the EYFS and provided a range of activities which are adult led and child initiated. The children’s learning and development is recorded in their own personal learning journey, this includes their artwork, observations and photos. We hold parent consultations twice annually.

Daily Diaries & The Famly app – Communication with parents

We use a daily communication diaries and daily report sheets which are sent home with recordings of what your child has achieved and done during their day at Nursery, this includes recording what they have eaten, their mood, what they have enjoyed playing with and participating in.

The famly app is an online portal which each parent is invited to join so that they can log into the platform and see what their child has been doing during the day. This enables us to share photos, events and observations with each parent on a regular basis.
