We offer high quality childcare and education for children aged from 3 months up to 2 years of age. We provide a well-planned fun environment where children can learn through play to explore their ideas and experiences.
The children are provided with a good balance between structured adult-led activities and child-initiated free play. We encourage learning by feeding children’s curiosity and by responding to their increasing confidence and knowledge.
Our days are carefully planned with the government’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum in mind. The EYFS Development Matters outlines what we can expect from children as they start school. We plan our activities around these Development Matters, taking into account the children’s interests and their individual progress needs.
The seven areas of focus are broken down into two groups:
Three Prime Areas
- Personal Social & Emotional Development
- Physical Development
- Communication & Language
Four Specific Areas
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts & Design
Each child at Baybees is assigned a key worker who will be responsible or helping your child to settle in and feel comfortable at nursery, to grow in confidence and to progress through each of the seven areas of learning. The key worker also keeps track of and records your child’s achievements at nursery and plans for the next steps in their learning and development.
