A typical day at Newlaithes Nursery consists of your child experiencing whole class teaching, small group work and exploring the environment through play. All three of these are planned to be very practical and matched to the child’s developmental needs and interests.
The indoor and outdoor classroom is divided into areas ie construction, water… and these have resources that are there permanently but are also enhanced with resources each week to cover specific themes. When children play in these areas we call this ‘planning time’.
The learning objectives in our Medium Term plans are taken from the Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage. We plan to the child’s interests and learning needs covering these statements throughout the year through a variety of themes and activities.
