From birth, children are natural learners and we know that each child will learn and develop differently. Your child will be monitored by their key person, who assesses how they are developing and uses this to design activities to support their development. We will use your child's interests to create games which support their next steps and our learning programme is based around the concept of learning through play.
Outdoors, your child will engage in hands-on activities to develop their skills using nature and natural materials. They might make art using leaves to develop their creativity, grow their imagination when building dens or improve their numeracy by counting sticks and stones.

We focus on the following areas of development:
