The provision for children’s development and learning is guided by The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Little Stars reflect the key themes and commitments of the EYFS and follows the practice guidance Early Learning Goals. Play helps babies to learn and develop through participation and communication, which research has shown to be the means by which babies learn.
With this in mind, we aim to offer a wide variety of events, experiences and activities for the babies in our care. We want the nursery to be alive with development opportunities so each child can find something they want to do. The experiences offered within the nursery are a combination of activities that are child initiated and adult led, in which the staff take the lead in helping the children to participate.
