We offer a broad and balanced curriculum at Rebecca Cheetham Nursery. Our aim is to give children exposure to a range of different learning opportunities and experiences using the story book as the base. We spend two weeks with a particular book so children grow to know the book intimately and help them develop a love of books and reading.
We generally stick with a theme over a half term period so we can explore ideas in a meaningful way and give children a chance to consolidate their learning through child initiated play.
Our early years curriculum should not be prescriptive or pre-determined; rather it should move with the children and be meaningful to their interests as starting points.
The attachment that follows helps to explain how we devise our curriculum; starting with the child, identifying ways that adults can facilitate and how we can give children further opportunities in the provision.
