We are a family run nursery that provides a safe and stimulating environment in which children grow and develop in preparation for life.
Brook House Nursery aims to deliver high quality childcare and education to enhance the children's development, individual needs and happiness.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which is a framework setting out the welfare and developmental goals for children of 5 years and under.
We are also using Development Matters (Non-statutory curriculum guidance for the Early Years Foundation Stage) September 2021 as a supporting document and our own unique 4 learning goals.
The aim of our curriculum is to equip children with the skills and knowledge they need to explore and understand the world around them. We believe that children grow and develop when they have
access to a well thought out learning environment, engaged adults and the freedom to play, experiment, question, observe and discuss.
The day is structured, but not rigidly so, and children are able to choose activities which have aroused their particular interest. Children learn new skills and knowledge through both adult and
child led opportunities indoors and outside, including our allotment.
Children work at their own pace. Activities are tailored to individual ability, and children's progress is reviewed regularly. Older children are actively encouraged to work individually or
collaboratively, an invaluable skill when they leave to attend larger classes in primary schools.
Below is a parents guide to our curriculum, highlighting some of the activities that the children will be encouraged to participate in.
