What is EYFS?
The Early Years Foundation Stage is the curriculum our Nursery follows.
This curriculum not only sets the educational criteria for the learning and development of babies and children up to the age of five years but also shapes the high standards of practice. Its central aim is to help young people achieve the ‘Every Child Matters’ outcomes:
• Being healthy
• Enjoying and achieving
• Making positive contributions
• Staying safe
• Achieving economic well-being
Seven Areas of Learning
The three key areas of development are:
• Communication and language
• Physical development
• Personal, social and emotional development
These areas of development support learning in the following, more specific, areas:
• Understanding the world
• Expressive arts and design
As part of a flexible curriculum, your child will be encouraged to explore and develop at their own pace in activities based around each of these areas.
Our purpose is to provide a safe and secure setting where children can flourish, develop and learn through child lead organized play and learning opportunities which will nurture their potential as an individual.
Our values are based on equality, diversity and inclusion. At Queensway Nursery and Preschool, we believe that every day is a learning day and that learning is all around us. As well as being a place of learning, we pride ourselves on ensuring that all children are coming in to a loving, caring environment where they are valued and listened to. We involve both the children and parents in trying to continually improve our standard of care and education.
Our aim is to provide a safe, happy, caring, stimulating and secure environment for our children where everyone feels valued, included and respected. We aim to meet every child’s individual needs and to equip our children with skills for learning, life and work, ready to actively grasp and follow their dreams in the future.
Every Child Matters
Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding childcare at our nursery. We know that your priority is to find a nursery that offers the right setting for your child.
At Queensway Nursery and Preschool we devote our energies to creating a fun and loving environment, whilst delivering the highest standard of care and education. Our goal is to create a positive and motivating experience that will, in turn, play a major role in your child’s future learning and development. Our friendly trained staffs are focused on providing learning experiences through exploration and discovery. They work to ensure your child develops as an individual whilst helping them to create positive relationships with peers and practitioners.
We want our little ones to feel secure and happy from the start so they can’t wait to come back tomorrow!
Key person & attachment
Children strive from a base of loving and secure relationships.
We take great care to help children settle into nursery. To assist with this, we allocate a member of staff known as a Key Person to your child. This Key Person will build a relationship with your child and help to meet their needs during their time in our care. The Key Person is someone for you to build a relationship with and share information with about your child’s time at nursery. Records of development and care are also created and shared by your child’s Key Person.
Progress & Record Keeping
Capture the magic of a child’s early years experience.
Tapestry is an online platform we use to build a very special journal of each child’s experiences and journey through their early years. Using photos, videos and diary entries, our practitioners, along with you as parents, ‘weaves’ the story of the child, enabling these memories to be kept as a permanent record of each unique life. The communication between Key Person and parents that Tapestry enables, helps build a shared understanding of how every child can reach their full potential. The Tapestry Care Diary records the daily care routines of your child including meals, sleep times and activities. This can be accessed daily allowing each parent/carer to keep in touch with their child’s progress and wellbeing.
At Queensway Nursery and Preschool, we believe that children are active learners and that we need to provide them with the right environment, support and experiences to stimulate their curiosity, imagination and creativity. The formative years of your child’s life are key to their on-going educational, physical and social development and so it is of the utmost importance to us to give them the best possible beginning.
Thank you for considering Queensway Nursery and Preschool.
