In both the Kidderminster an Stourport nursery, as part of the Early Years Foundation Stage, our Every Child Matters planning encourages all 2-3 year olds in numbers and shape recognition as well as offering them the opportunity of taking part in the learning and development activities designed for their participation and ability. Weekly planning sheets are displayed on the parent’s notice board to inform them of the daily/weekly activities their child will be participating in, and should clarification be needed, staff are available on a daily basis to talk and inform parents about their child’s ability and/or concerns. There is an equal balance of both adult-led and child-led activities throughout the day.
