Learning & Development

Our Mission is simple; to nurture and grow happy, healthy and inquisitive little achievers.

We believe that every child is a unique individual and to enable the natural skills, abilities, and personalities of each child to flourish, all of our settings aim to promote a safe, caring environment that offers the child the opportunity to learn through both structured and unstructured play.

We believe that children learn from the minute they are born and literally soak in their environment; using their natural senses they explore, experiment, take pride, make decision and become responsible little people.

Our philosophy is to allow children to reach for the sky by making choices, experimenting, making mistakes, and having magical adventures in a safe, stimulating, home from home, environment.

Sky High Achievers
  • ​Understanding your child’s individualism and making sure it is respected, valued, and nurtured.
  • Using authentic, natural resources to enable your child to discover beauty, reality, ore, and wonder.
  • Provoking curiosity and exploration both indoors and out with child-centered learning.
  • ​Meeting and extending the national curriculum to ensure your child is an active little learning reaching for the sky always.
  • Offering nurturing, exciting, inviting, magical, and adventurous play spaces.
  • ​Employing a diverse, exceptional, supportive, passionate team to create an engaging, stimulating, exciting and magical atmosphere in which we follow the National Early Years Curriculum.

Your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge, and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development.

Children should mostly develop the 3 prime areas first:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, social, and emotional development.

These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning.

As your child grows, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive arts and design

These 7 areas are used to plan your child’s learning and activities. Our staff who are teaching and supporting your child will make sure that the activities are suited to your child’s unique needs. This is a little bit like a curriculum in primary schools, but it’s suitable for very young children and it’s designed to be really flexible so that staff can follow your child’s unique needs and interests.

Children in the EYFS learn by playing and exploring, being active and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside.


Keeping You Updated

Progress checks and profiles when your child is 2. Our team will give you a written summary of how your child is progressing against the 3 prime areas of learning.

  • Communication and language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, social, and emotional development

This is called the progress check at age 2 It highlights areas where your child is progressing well and anywhere they might need some extra help or support.

Transition To School

It’s a huge progression moving from nursery to school and we want to ensure that this is as hassle free as possible for you and your child.

We work closely with the local schools and the extended community throughout your child’s time with us to ensure we make that transition as smooth as possible when the time comes.

Please feel free to ask a member of staff for a copy of our Transition to School policy.
