We believe that teaching and learning must be centred on the child and in line with the Early Years Learning Framework, a balance between play based learning and intentional teaching.
Play provides opportunities for children to learn as they discover, create, improvise and imagine. Planned and incidental learning occurs throughout the day as a whole class, in small groups and individually, to guide and extend the children’s thinking, learning and development.The learning environments are welcoming and stimulating spaces that engage all children. They are flexible and responsive to the needs, interests and abilities of each child.
The indoor and outdoor areas offer opportunities for the children to develop and extend their learning encouraging open-ended interactions, exploration, spontaneity and discovery.
