Children become sociable at a very early age and by 18 months are usually ready to build relationships, play and learn with other young children and with some adults outside their immediate family circle.
Plus Three Nurseries Ltd will encourage and build upon this social development in order that the child can make a smooth transition into full time primary education.
Our Aim is to provide an environment where learning is fun and a challenge to the inquisitive and active young child. Children are taught individually and in small groups to develop their own intellectual, creative, physical and social abilities through stimulation within the classroom and outside.
Each week we plan our activities based on observations made on the individual child. The aim of this method is to continually plan for the individual child’s next steps of development and learning, based on the three prime areas and then four further specific areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage of education
Prime Areas – Communication & Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social & Emotional Development.
Specific Areas – Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts & Design.
