At Roxmead Nursery our aim is to provide high quality care and education for all children, working in partnership with parents to help children learn and develop.

We aim to ensure that each child:

>     is in a safe and stimulating environment

>     is given generous care and attention, because of our ratio of qualified staff to children.

>     has the chance to join in with other children and adults to live, play, work and learn together.

>     is helped to take forward her/his learning and development by being helped to build on what she/he already knows and can do.

>     has a personal key person who makes sure each child makes satisfying progress.

>     is in a setting that sees parents as partners in helping each child to learn and develop.

The provision for children's development and learning is guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage (DfE 2021). Our provision reflects the four overarching principles of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.

A Unique Child
Every child is a unique child who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.

Positive Relationships
Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.

Enabling Environments
Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners, parents and corers.

Learning and Development
Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision including children with special educational needs and disabilities.

How we provide for development and learning
Children start to learn about the world around them from the moment they are born. The care and education offered by our Nursery helps children to continue to do this by providing all of the children with interesting activities that are appropriate for their age and stage of development.


Our programme supports children to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding they need for:

Personal, social and emotional development
making relationships; sense of self and understanding emotions

Physical development
