Nursery and Kindergarten is a bridge from home to school and an introduction to the more structured environment they will encounter in Reception. Beachborough believes that all children learn the most when they are happy and confident. The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum is delivered through play, where young children can learn with enjoyment and challenge. There is a balance of child-initiated, adult-initiated and adult focused activities each session.
The activities are structured to encourage the development of the whole child. Our topic approach provides a theme for the term’s activities. Plans may be found on the notice board outside the Kindergarten door or inside the Nursery room. Our planning encompasses the seven areas of learning:-
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
We work with you to carefully document the progress of your child in a personalised learning journey record, which helps form a smooth transition to school and is a lovely record for you to keep.
