Curriculum

At Butterfly Day Nursery all children are encouraged to learn through play. Our curriculum covers all the areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) for children 0-5 years and is designed to meet the needs of each individual child.Learning is categorized into seven areas in which our Early Years Professionals support and develop.These are:

Communication and language development involves giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations.


Physical development involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of
physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food.


Personal, social and emotional development involves helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves, and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities.


Literacy development involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Children must be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest.

Mathematics involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems; and to describe shapes, spaces, and measures.

 

Understanding the world involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.

 

Expressive arts and design involves enabling children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials, as well as providing opportunities and encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play, and design and technology.

 

 

 

Every child will be allocated a key person to enable them to feel reassured, safe and cared for whilst at the nursery. The key person will monitor your child’s needs and keep a detailed learning journey during their time with us. Parents can view these at any time and we encourage parents to add details of experiences captured outside of the nursery.


Parent’s evenings will be held twice a year to provide an opportunity to discuss your child’s progress on a formal one to one basis.
