Nursery - About Us

In Delves Nursery we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework which is specifically designed for children aged up to 5 years of age.  This is divided into six areas:
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication, Language ad Literacy
  • Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy
  • Knowledge and Understanding of the World
  • Physical Development
  • Creative Development

All of these areas will be used to plan activities for your child.  Observations and photographs will be taken whilst in Nursery to help monitor your child's learning and development whilst and will be used as part of their Learning Journey.


A Typical Nursery Session...
Each Nursery session will start with registration in a family group.  This will be followed by an activity known as l'etters and sounds' which focuses on building early literacy skills.  There will also be a planned activity where your child will have the opportunity to extend their learning and skills.  This activity may take place inside or by using the outdoor area.

 

Children will have the opportunity to play in the outdoor area to help develop their physical and social skills using a variety of equipment.  Your child will also learn important skills through many play activities available.

Milk and fruit will be offered for every child in their family group.

Every week your child will participate in a P.E. lesson in the hall.  Storytime and singing are also incorporated into each session to promote speaking and listening skills
