Care, Learning and Play Policy

Children learn when they are in a safe and caring environment where they are stimulated through play.

Babies and young children develop best when they are in a caring relationship with an adult. A baby will learn to walk faster when they have a safe pair of arms to walk towards and learn to talk, when they have an adult listening and responding to them.

I will strive to provide your child with an environment that will be caring, fun and stimulating. I will implement ideas from:-

  1. Birth to three matters framework
  2. National Guidance to the Foundation Stage
  3. Development Matters
  4. Early Years handbook –April 2018
  5. Prevent Duty
  6. Working together to safeguard children
  7. Send Code of Practice
  8. Keeping Children Safe – Sept 2018
  9. Early Years Outcomes
  10. British Values

(Please ask me if you would like to see a copy of any of the above documents)

I will provide activities that support the both the Prime Areas and the Specific Areas of Learning and Development:

  1. Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  2. Physical Development
  3. Communication and Language
  4. Literacy
  5. Mathematics
  6. Understanding of the World
  7. Expressive Arts and Design

These activities will include:

  1. Dressing up clothes
  2. Books and Videos
  3. Small world toys
  4. Construction toys (lego, duplo etc)
  5. Pretend play (toy kitchen etc)
  6. Water play
  7. Arts and Crafts
  8. Outings
  9. Cooking
  10. Gardening
  11. Outdoor play and equipment

I will regularly observe your child and make a written record. This will enable me to make very simple plans on how I can help your child move onto the next stage of their development. These records are available for you to look at anytime.

If there is a particular activity that you would like me to do with your child, please let me know. I am very happy to support activities that you are doing at home or events that have happened. For example if you have been to a wedding I can continue this theme by providing the children with material to use as wedding clothes and help them understand through books and other resources.
