   Curriculum

Our activity criteria for each age group will meet every child’s individual needs, whilst remaining innovative, creative and perceptive. We will provide the structure in which children can discover, try out, plan and choose for themselves, enabling them to learn and develop to their full potential.

Our staff get to know the children and develop the activities to the childs individual development and capabilities. By working in small key groups and on a one to one basis at any time needed. The staff work alongside the regulations of Ofsted by planning indoor and outdoor activities for the children using the EYFS Foundation Stage.
