    We encourage the children to explore paint, using fingers and hands, as well as brushes and other tools. The learn to express their ideas and feelings through making marks and sometimes giving meaning to the marks that they make.

    We have very strict security procedures to ensure the safety of the children. Before being allowed into the nurseries, visitors must have a valid reason for being there, show photographic ID and sign the visitors book. Visitors are never left unsupervised in the nurseries.

    We provide different materials to enable the children to use all of their senses to explore them. We use these opportunities to expand the children’s vocabulary with words such as ‘wet’, ‘dry’, ‘bubbles’, ‘happy’ and ‘laughing’.

    We encourage the children to develop their phonological awareness and a love of books. Our aim is to help children understand the meaning of ‘print’ and its many different purposes, whilst expanding their vocabulary and understanding.

    Children are powerful learners. Effective pedagogy is a mix of different approaches. Children learn through play, by observing one another and through guided learning and direct teaching.

    We encourage the use of mathematical understanding and language. For example, whilst comparing weights and sizes, words such as ‘heavy’, ‘light’, ‘lower’, ‘bigger’ and ‘smaller’. We then continue to use this vocabulary in everyday contexts to reinforce new language.
