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;

  • Creativity
  • 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
  • Outings
  • Cooking
  • Gardening
  • 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.
