Learning & Play Policy
Children learn when they are in a safe and caring environment where they are stimulated through play.
Babies and young children develop best when they are in a caring relationship with an adult. A baby will learn to walk faster when they have a safe pair of arms to walk towards and learn to talk, when they have an adult listening and responding to them.
I will strive to provide your child with an environment that will be caring, fun and stimulating. I will implement ideas from the Birth to three “EYFS Development Matters” framework and National Guidance to the Foundation Stage. (Please ask me if you would like to see a copy of these documents)
I will provide activities that support the seven main learning areas:
Three Prime areas;
- Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development
- Language and communication
Four Specific areas;
- Mathematical and logical thinking
- Knowledge and Understanding of the World.
- Art and Design
These activities will include: (but not limited to)
- Dressing up clothes
- Books and Videos
- Small world toys
- Construction toys (lego, duplo etc)
- Pretend play (toy kitchen etc)
- Messy play
- Water play
- Arts and Crafts
- Outdoor play and equipment
I will regularly observe your child and will be more than happy to discuss any aspects of their development with you.
If there is a particular activity that you would like me to do with your child, please let me know. I am very happy to support activities that you are doing at home or events that have happened. For example if you have been to a wedding I can continue this theme by providing the children with material to use as wedding clothes and help them understand through books and other resources.
