Early Years Education

All our planning is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage.   We use the Development Matters document to track each child’s progress and to plan using the children’s needs and interests. The following areas are used to help develop your child’s skills and experiences.

The Prime Areas

Communication and Language development involves giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations.

Physical Development involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food.

Personal, social and emotional development involves helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves, and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to form positive relationships and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities.

The specific Areas

Literacy development involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write.  Children must be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest.

Mathematics involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems; and to describe shapes, spaces, and measures.

 

Understanding the world involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems; and to describe shapes, spaces, and measures.

Expressive arts and design involves enabling children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials, as well as providing opportunities and encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance role-plays and design and technology.

Neighbourhood Nursery (Pre-School Educations)

Whether you receive a free nursery place or not your child will be provided with an Early Years Education monitored and evaluated by the Bright Beginnings Nursery teacher and staff in line with OFSTED Early years.

As we only work with small class sizes at Bright Beginnings Nursery, – a maximum of sixteen per session – we can provide your child with the individual attention they require to develop in all areas of learning.
