Child centred practice is at the heart of the life of the nursery.
Learning activities are planned by staff in response to the child's interests and in light of staff observations of the child in the nursery environment.
The learning environment is outstanding and relationships between child and key person are given utmost importance.
The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum underpins the learning experiences within the nursery.
Parents are closely involved in the day to day work of the nursery, sharing informal discussion of their child's experience and regular reports on their progress.
