At Kneehigh Nursery we have specific aims to prepare your child for school. With all our learning activities we aim to  develop your child’s knowledge, skills, concepts, ideas and attitudes. Our curriculum aims to:

  • Encourage your child to be polite, considerate, ask questions
  • Encourage your child to be independent as they can be and be ready for school
  • Be able to write their own name and more if possible.
  • Recognize and hopefully write the numbers up to five.
  • Know all the colours and most shapes.

How we help children at different ages

The EYFS curriculum makes a positive contribution to children’s early development and learning. At Kneehigh we know that the early years are critical in children’s development. The EYFS is about developing key learning skills such as listening, speaking, concentration, persistence and learning to work together and co-operate with other children. It is also about numeracy skills that will prepare young children for Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum, as well as helping to support and build children’s confidence so they become confident learners.

Your childs safety is paramount - Covid safety measures in place.

How do we plan our activities?

At Kneehigh, play is promoted as the most appropriate way for children under five to learn. Each day has a variety of planned learning activities and the children have the opportunity to choose what they would like to play with too.

We have a short-term curriculum plan for each day of the week, which is differentiated, in order to be suitable for all the children that attend.

We incorporate a free flow system throughout each session, where the children have free access to activities and anything that interests them, inside or outdoors.

Knee High Nursery Background

At Kneehigh Nursery we use a key worker system which offers each family unit support and care from one of our qualified members of staff. The staff member is responsible for encouraging and tracking your child’s development. 

They ensure you are kept up to date about their learning journey. The key person plays an important part in establishing a positive relationship with parents and facilitating strong connections between the home and setting environments, so we can work in partnership with you. 

Parents are welcome to discuss any issues with their child’s key person or the Manager.

Your child is catered for at Kneehigh Nursery!
