Practitioners devise planning following the Early Years Foundation Stage framework offering a high standard of quality care using a variety of resources to develop skills and learning in all of the seven key learning areas. Themes are developed following the children’s interests and activities are planned to challenge their natural ability. Children are encourage to develop independent skills by making choices, self-serving at lunchtime and extend their personal hygiene skills in preparation for school. Qualified, experienced staff support children and help them to gain confidence to give them the very best start as they prepare for ‘big school’.
