Care and Education

Bright Sparks Nursery is purpose built  with well equipped indoor and outdoor play areas. We take children from the term in which they are 3 and can accomodate 24 children each session. We aim to provide a friendly, happy and exciting atmosphere and to encourage enthusiasm for learning and play. Play has a vital role in child development as it is through play that children learn the skills they need for life. In our nursery we aim to provide opportunities for each child to acquire those skills at his or her own speed in a safe and stimulating environment, encouraged by qualified and caring adults. Therefore our sessions are planned to cover all areas of the curriculum through play activities which reflect the interests of the children.

The curriculum is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage framework which is divided into seven areas of learning;    





Our library

     Our curriculum is designed to cover all these areas through interesting and challenging experiences. Children are encouraged to learn through play, socialise and co-operate and above all, to enjoy their time at nursery.

 The Early Years Foundation Stage framework places a strong emphasis on observing children and planning activities based on these observations. While at nursery children are continually being assessed on all aspects of their development, and our activities are planned so that we can best help them to assimilate the information and learn the skills they need to progress. We have a comprehensive observation system in place for all children and we record our observations and use these to plan appropriate activities which reflect the interests and abilities of the children.Observations and records of each child's development are kept throughout their time in nursery and are used to ensure that individual needs are met and progress is monitored. We encourage parents to contribute to these records and they are shared with parents on a regular basis.
