“Staff observe children as they play. They use what they know about the children to plan interesting and stimulating activities that are rooted in their interests.”
Early Years Foundation Stage
At Oakland Hall Day Nursery our curriculum is based upon the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which is defined by the Department for Education (DFE).
The Early Years Foundation Stage framework is reflected in our practice within an environment that ensures children experience a variety of rich play experiences which are carefully planned.
We encourage children to reach their full potential whilst allowing them to develop at their own pace. Each child’s development is closely monitored and encouraged.
Sangeeta has introduced Spanish to the mighty Oak’s children each week.
Also, each Tuesday the super saplings and mighty oaks take part in tiny tots ballet. A dance teacher coms into the nursery and teachers the children’s different movements to music. Each term there is different theme such as ‘under the sea’ and ‘teddys bear picnic’.
We are also considering yoga/baby dance classes.
Working with parents
Our relationship with parents is a key element to our success, and is essential to the well – being, development and progress of your child during their time at Oakland Hall Day Nursery. We welcome any new ideas from parents.
