“It should be noted that children at play are not playing about, they games shopuld be seen as their most serious minded activity.”
At Siblings Nursery we pride ourselves on the relaxed, calm and friendly atmosphere that our dedicated staff have created to fulfil all needs of our children and families. The environment enables children to explore, investigate and experiment with ease and confidence knowing caring and sensitive adults support them.
Children are able to participate in a wide variety of exciting and challenging experiences. There are also opportunities for outings to local places of interest – such as the pet shop, even the local supermarket – the children ‘write’ their own lists from instruction of the Nursery Cook and the amount of learning that is observed from these trips is fantastic!
It is essential to first understand the child’s personal interest and pace of learning. The more we learn about and understand your child the more we can challenge your child in new and exciting ways and help them reach developmental goals.
Each child has an individual file detailing their ‘learning journey’ through the developmental milestones and each child is monitored by a key person on an ongoing basis using the seven areas of learning within the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. Every child will be assessed using Development Matters and ECAT trackers. These are widely used throughout schools in Sunderland so it is useful to pass onto your child’s Reception teacher when they leave Siblings Nursery.
Any observations, planning and assessments that we do for your child is to support the Every Child Matters – Outcomes for Children. Our main priority is to provide learning activities that match your child’s developmental skills, their interests and emotional needs. Our aim is to create, inquisitive, well adjusted eager learners with the sound foundations they need, to move to school with confidence.
