Learning Environment

Nursery Curriculum


At Little Learners we understand the importance of formative learning; our child-centred, play-based curriculum is tailored to meet the needs of each individual child irrespective of age or ability. The nursery curriculum enables children to play, learn and develop at their own pace whilst playing with resources and equipment of their own choice.


Each room in the nursery carry out weekly plans which incorporate every child’s interests and preferences into the nursery curriculum. The plans are based on observations which are recorded by keyworkers and documented within each child’s development file. The nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) (DfES 2015) guidance.


The EYFS incorporates both statutory and non-statutory guidance relating to the care and education of all children aged from birth to five years. “Every child deserves the best possible start in life and support to fulfil their potential.” (EYFS, 2007) We at Little Learners endeavour to promote this statement whilst ensuring that all children in our care are happy, safe, stimulated and able to thrive.

The Nursery Environment


Little Learners is divided into separate rooms which your child is allocated based on age and ability. However the nursery routine is structured, enabling all age groups to come together at certain times of the day. We find the children particularly enjoy their time together in a relaxed, family like atmosphere. (Story time, circle time, lunchtime & outside play).

Babies and young children need very special consideration and individual care. Little Learners have especially designed all the rooms with equipment and resources to promote a wealth of experiences for young exploring minds, in a warm, safe and bright environment. The staff/child ratios throughout the nursery are very high, ensuring all children receive the individual adult interaction and stimulation that is so very important in their early developmental stages.
