Welcome to Goldilocks Nursery
Our goal is to ensure that we provide the highest quality childcare that is accessible and affordable. We aim to help children become successful learners and confident individuals. To accomplish this, we give children opportunities to develop at their own pace through constructive progressive play. We also have good links with speech & language early years advisors and specialist teachers. Your children will be safe, loved and stimulated in an enjoyable, well-maintained and home-style environment.
Our objective is for your child to leave our nursery with the confidence and skills to help them meet the challenges that lie ahead in the school system and beyond. We passionately believe this is to be a joint effort between the nursery and parents, and to that end we will promote a healthy understanding and respect for natural values in all aspects of the nursery environment.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), the core statutory framework for children from birth to the end of their reception year, is the basis for all planning.
As a childcare provider we ensure that children are supported in seven areas of learning. These areas shape the educational programmes that we offer and all learning is developed through fun and play-based activities. There are three prime areas and four specific areas, these stimulate children’s love of learning and build on their skills so that they can thrive, communicate, form relationships and learn.
In the early years the curriculum is based on skills children need to acquire rather than on information they need to learn. Each year, the nursery makes long term, medium term and short term curriculum plans. This allows us to organise interesting activities and programmes that support the children in working towards all the targets. Although the Foundation Stage document covers what the children need to learn and how they need to learn, the nursery is left to develop its own style and approach.
