At Midland Road we ensure a high quality learning environment both indoors and outdoors in all of our nurseries with well trained, caring and committed professionals. We know that children’s well-being has a significant impact on their learning and development so happy safe children is our primary aim in order to support children’s learning and progress. Staff observe children regularly in order to inform their planning and ensure that each individual child’s needs are met. Observations and planning focus on the 7 areas of Learning & Development; Click on the areas of learning to read our curriculum policies.
Please see our Growing & Learning section on the home page of our website for more information about children’s development.
Play is at the heart of our curriculum and we balance child led activities with more focused adult planned experiences. Play is children’s work … pay us a visit and we feel sure that you will see how hard our children work at nursery and how much they are learning.
We know that parents are the biggest influence on children’s lives which is why we place so much importance on working in partnership with parents.
