Policy Statement

Children learn when they are in a safe and caring environment where they are stimulated through play.

Babies and young children develop best when they are in a caring relationship with an adult. A baby will learn to walk faster when they have a safe pair of arms to walk towards and learn to talk when they have an adult listening and responding to them.


I will strive to provide your child with an environment that will be caring, fun and stimulating. I will implement ideas from the Early Years Foundation Stage and include:

CL - Communication and Language

EAD - Expressive Arts and Design

L - Literacy

M - Mathematics

PD - Physical Development

PSED - Personal, Social and Emotional Development

UW - Understanding the World

These activities will include but are not limited to:

Dressing up

Reading Stories

Small world toys

Construction toys (lego, duplo etc)

Role play (toy kitchen etc)

Water play

Arts and Crafts



Outdoor play and equipment (at the park)

I will regularly observe your child and make records, these will enable me to make plans on how I can help your child move onto the next stage of their development.

If there is a particular activity that you would like me to do with your child, please let me know. I am very happy to support activities that you are doing at home or events that have happened. For example if you have been to a wedding I can continue this theme by providing the children with material to use as wedding clothes and help them understand through books and other resources.
