Every child is different, has different needs and abilities, and will develop at their own pace. Because of this – and to ensure your child receives the greatest benefit from their time with us – our nursery has a clearly structured, individual learning plan; at the heart of which is a strong, play-based curriculum. Learning is carefully designed so children can use first-hand experiences to help them understand concepts, gain skills – and have fun!
You may be surprised at how quickly your child develops at nursery – especially in terms of their independence, ability and eagerness to do things by themselves. We work within the Early Years Foundation Stage and have a successful record of children leaving Westhill House Day Nursery with a passion for learning.
Information about your child’s progress whilst at nursery is updated regularly in a personal ‘Learning Journey’ including observations and photos. At parent’s evenings we share their progress. We invite you to contribute to the ‘Learning Journey’ to make it a complete story every month.
We extend children’s natural curiosity through a range of sensory activities and experiences (which can be quite messy… spaghetti swamps and slime are favourites). We encourage children to explore and test their own limits.
