Our curriculum intentions ensure the Eyfs is implemented and is meaningful to our children

Our curriculum intentions ensure the Eyfs is implemented and is meaningful to our children. We strive to ensure children make good progression whilst in our care, this is assessed through regular observations and in the moment reflections. 

We have created a curriculum that is child centered, with their interest at the heart of what we do. 

Additionally, our skilled staff can identify when additional support is needed and create positive modifications or referrals to assist the child further. 

We motto this as walk, talk, be kind and be happy.
Curriculum overview

We ensure our environment is fully accessible for the children with the intent to enhance all developmental skills. Our staff will embed provocations to spark interest and curiosity further, which creates further communication, interests, and developmental enhancements.  

We have trained behaviour and wellbeing coordinators that continuously make adaptations to improve wellbeing and establish positive behaviour intentions within our nursery. Furthermore, all staff have been trained on The Levan scale and we use the information to assist our planning for the individual child’s needs.

Therefore, although we embed every area of the Eyfs, our core focused intentions of our curriculum are;

  • Personal, Social and Emotional skills
  • Communication and Language skills
  • Physical development
  • Children’s wellbeing
  • Developing and enhancing the articulation of the Children’s, parents, and practitioner’s voice. 

What does our curriculum look like?

We use our rooms and outdoor space to create meaningful interactions.

We continuously encourage further learning through play and ensure our environment is stimulating and adaptable to the child’s interests.

Our under 3s have focus rhymes and key words each week. This assists with provocations for focus activities and continuous provision.

Our preschool children vote for their focus story/stories each week, similarly they also have 5 key words to extend their vocabulary too.
