At Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries our approach to your child’s development starts with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum and goes way further to help your child make the most of their time at nursery and prepare them for the journey ahead.

The principles which guide the work of our Early Years Professionals are grouped into four themes:

A unique child – every child is a competent leaner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self assured

Positive Relationships – children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or key person

Enabling Environments – the environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning

Learning and Development – children develop and learn in different ways and at different times; all areas of learning and development are equally important and inter-connected.

There are three prime areas of learning in which our Early Years Professionals support children to learn and develop. These are:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Communication and  language
  • Physical development

Plus four specific areas of learning.  These are:

  • Knowledge and understanding of the world
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Expressive arts and design

Each child has their own key person to enable them to feel reassured, safe and cared for within our setting. This person also keeps a detailed Learning Journey of the child’s progress during their time with us. These records are available to be viewed and discussed at any time by parents, who are always encouraged to add details of their child’s experiences from outside the nursery.

If you have any specific questions about the curriculum, please get in touch with our manager, who will be happy to answer any questions.
