We do more than the curriculum suggests ...........

The Newnham Nursery curriculum is based on  ‘Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum’ by the ‘Department of Children, Schools and Families’

Within the group, all the children are supported in learning at their own pace and our key person system enables the staff to ensure a planned curriculum tailored to the needs of each individual child. By means of developmentally appropriate play activities, we offer a curriculum that is challenging and enjoyable across all areas of learning and development which enables children to progress towards early learning goals In addition it highlights the footsteps along which each child progresses towards the ‘Early Learning Goals’.

When planning the term’s activities, the staff take into account the seven areas of children’s learning and development prescribed by the government, namely:

  • Communication and language.
  • Physical development.
  • Personal, social and emotional development.
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics.
  • Understanding the world.
  • Expressive arts and design
