Other than mealtimes, activities are not set in stone. Children are encouraged to use their imagination and make use of the provision on offer. Adult – initiated learning takes place throughout the day however research shows that children thrive in an environment where they are free to explore and engage through their own ideas. Children have many opportunities throughout each day to have one -one time with an adult, where we do focussed learning appropriate to their individual stage, age and development. We work closely with the parent(s) providing strong partnerships which ensures the children are settled and have consistently high levels of appropriate care.
