At Peregrines Nursery our curriculum is delivered using a play-based approach as outlined by the Early Years Foundation Stage. We plan for meaningful play through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activities. During play our teachers interact to challenge and extend children further with minimum pressure and lots of fun. We create stimulating environments where children can choose to engage with planned learning activities or can independently access resources to use in their own play or exploration.
The children have whole group and small group learning sessions which increase as they progress through EYFS and in accordance with the needs of the children.
Our Early Years programme has been developed to offer your child positive learning experiences. Young children learn best through play and first-hand experience, with this in mind structured and spontaneous play situations provide the opportunity for individual development in the seven areas of learning both indoors and outdoors.
Using the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, we focus on three primary and four specific areas of learning.
Throughout the year the pupils are involved in activities such as World Book Day, Poetry Day, visiting author workshops and educational visits. Recent visits have included a trip to Windsor Castle to hunt for dragons, a Listening Walk on our local common and a trip to Kew Gardens to learn about the Rainforest!
