Promoting curiosity, inquiry and creativity
Our children are encouraged to learn through play and active involvement. We support our children’s learning and development through observation and continuous assessment, building on their skills and knowledge every day through responsive and adult led planning.
“Creativity sits alongside inquiry and problem solving. Being creative is not just about painting and model making or making music, although these are highly important for children, but also includes reasoning out, testing and solving problems, putting things together and taking them apart and figuring out how things work. Early mathematics and numeracy are closely interlinked with inquiry and creativity and is best achieved in practical meaningful contexts for children where they make sense of the world about them.” Building the Ambition

Communication is vital in all areas of life, but especially at an early age when they are making their needs and wants known. So it is important that we foster positive forms of communication with our families and children.
