Learning Quest

Welcome to Learning Quest

From 3 years of age the children are moving forward rapidly with their learning skills and getting ready for the next stage, starting school.

Fun learning experience

Our aim is to engage the children in fun learning experiences where they gain wondrous new ideas that encourage them and help to develop the confidence needed to investigate further and discover more. By now they have started to make friends and build on their social skills, the 'Learning Team' will plan activities that encourage the children to work together in teams and as individuals. We will start to look at the skills they require to become keen readers and encourage mathematical skills using music, movement, art, craft and design. By following the Early Years Foundation Stage we will be helping the children to learn through play and develop the skills they will need as future learners in the big wide world. We will liaise with local schools and work alongside the reception teachers to establish bonds that will support the children in their transition to school life.

Family time

Children with siblings in the nursery may spend time with brothers and sisters in order to establish further the family bond in other appropriate rooms or outside play spaces.

Settling in

Parents are welcome to spend time with their child whilst they settle into the nursery or may choose to view them while they settle on CCTV monitor in the office until they feel comfortable to leave. Settling in sessions are offered to encourage an easy and happy transition for all. When you collect your child at the end of their session we will share information on your child's day in a diary which will include nappy changes, feeds and play experiences. We value parents as their child's main educator and love to hear about your child's home experiences by encouraging parents to write in the diary so that we can share and support your child's home learning.

Support

If you would like any support from our experienced and qualified team please ask, we are happy to help and have information on local agencies and support groups in our reception area. You are welcome to view any of our policies and procedures in the file in the reception area by the nursery entrance.
