Learning Journeys

The Learning Journey

The Learning Journey is each child’s individual story of their time at nursery. It is full of examples of art work, photo cards of the child’s achievements and WOW! moments. There is also growth information such as hand and foot prints and fun activities for children to measure their height.

The Learning Journey includes information from the very first day each child starts the nursery and it is added to continually by the child’s Key Person.

These are fascinating for the children to look at and are also enjoyable for the child to be involved in adding information to themselves. We also encourage parents to get involved with the Learning Journey and they are lovely for the parents to have at the end of their child’s time at nursery.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is how the Government and early years professionals describe the time in your child’s life between birth and age 5.

This is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born up until the age of 5, their early years experience should be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure; and support their development, care and learning needs.

Nurseries, pre-schools, reception classes and child minders registered to deliver the EYFS must follow a legal document called the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.

Testimonials

H has been able to play with new toys/activities and be surrounded by children and lovely staff members.   We are moving away from the area, we are very sad that we have to move her nursery.

I love hearing about H's day when I pick her up, she looks so comfortable with all of the staff especially Kirsty.  Kirsty has been fabulous, she has really taken her time with H and H adores her. Kirsty has gone above and beyond for H. We know that she gets very attached to people and we are lucky that we have had Kirsty and all of your lovely staff members to look after her.

The nursery is very reasonably priced and we have been really happy with her care and all communications.  I have already recommended the nursery to other friends and colleagues.

Thank you so much for everything. Unfortunately we have unexpectedly had to move locations but if we hadn’t we would have been very happy for H to stay at the nursery.
