We wish for our children to believe in themselves and their abilities and capabilities, to be successful communicators, to feel they belong and to celebrate their individuality. Our curriculum supports children to develop knowledge, skills and understanding to enable them to reach their full potential. To do this we encourage children to challenge themselves and assess risk, build their confidence and self-esteem, learn to problem solve, develop language and communication skills, build relationships, and develop a sense of self and self-regulation, to be successful, inquisitive, resilient, curious, independent learners and influence their wider thinking across all areas of the curriculum. It is our intention that children experience the seven areas of learning from the Early year’s foundation stage through a balance of different teaching styles and play based learning. This is through children’s interests, topics, and the continuous provision we provide. Learning supports communication and language development, personal social and emotional development, and physical development as well as literacy, mathematics, understanding of the world and expressive arts and design. We believe that all children are intrinsically capable of amazing things, and we develop this by having high expectations for all children.

The impact of our curriculum can be measured by how effectively it helps our children develop into well rounded individuals who make good progress and carry with them the knowledge, skills and attitudes learnt whilst at the nursery.
From their differing starting points, all children will make good progress emotionally, creatively, socially, and physically with our broad and balanced curriculum ensuring that all children have the potential to achieve. We ensure the needs of each individual child can be met with high quality learning and targeted interventions as needed.
The impact of our curriculum is also measured by ongoing assessment, working successfully in partnership with parents ensuring each child is moving forward with their development in their own way, fostering a firm belief that each child is unique, and they have the potential to become successful learners, effective communicators, confident individuals and become responsible citizens and effective contributors to society.
