Learning, Development & Assessment

Our approach to children’s Learning, Development and Assessment

Play is vital for children, it helps them to understand the world around them and to develop socially and emotionally. Play in a secure environment with effective adult support allows the children to explore, investigate and enjoy the learning experience. We aim to practice and develop ideas, concepts and skills in a unique and non-threatening way, without fear of failure.

We believe that children are active learners from birth and that if we provide them with the right environment, support and experiences, it will help to encourage their curiosity, imagination and creativity.

We provide a broad range of challenging and stimulating activities where children have the opportunities to develop physically, socially and intellectually. Our pre-schools offer a rich and varied environment which supports children’s learning and development, builds confidence and encourages independence as well as providing indoor and outdoor spaces for children to explore which are both challenging and stimulating.

The pre-school environment is organized into clearly defined areas to accommodate different activities appropriate to the development and competence of the children. Low level units allow resources to be displayed within reach so that children can make informed choices about what they want to use in their activities. Children have access to a wide range of materials such as sand, water and paint which encourages their creativity and independence.

We recognise that each child is different, with his/her own interests, abilities and developing view of the world. We respect the many different forms of family life that children may experience as well as their social and cultural backgrounds.
