Curriculum

Our approach values all children as individuals and starts from their interests and unique qualities.

We support our children to be confident, articulate and creative learners through exciting experiences which have real meaning for them.  We believe our "curriculum" covers all of the experiences and relationships we offer and develop.

We have given every aspect of life at Lark Hill Nursery School careful thought.

Our statutory curriculum is called the Early Years Foundation Stage and includes seven areas of learning.

 

Prime Areas

These are the 3 areas of learning which form the foundations for learning

1) Personal, social and emotional development

We believe children are learning all of the time and we know through their play children are thinking deeply and learning about themselves, the world and others.
