Early Years at Esh Winning Primary School
At Esh Winning Nursery we believe that your child is unique and deserves the very best start to their educational journey. Learning in Nursery begins with a play based curriculum centred around the Statutory Framework for Early Years Foundation Stage. Play is essential to children’s learning, health and wellbeing and is a fundamental part of our daily routine at Esh Winning Nursery.
Indoor and outdoor play opportunities are utilised to develop and encourage children’s learning in all seven areas of development. Although we provide ‘themes’ to our learning, often based around a traditional tale or favourite story, learning is more often child led and we aim to provide a range of activities where the children’s interests lie. This could include dinosaurs, princesses or superheroes to name just a few.
Provision in Nursery allows children to develop in all seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Areas such as water and sand, home corner, small world and reading areas present opportunities for children to develop fundamental social skills whilst building relationships with new friends and staff in a positive learning environment.
Physical skills are developed indoors and outdoors using a range of gross motor equipment and outdoor writing and reading areas allow children to continue their exploratory learning wherever they choose.
The adults in Nursery support and encourage the children’s learning opportunities wherever possible and are constantly observing and questioning during the children’s play.
