The early learning goals

Prime areas


  • Communication and language development involves giving children the opportunities to experience a rich language environment, to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves and to be able to speak and listen in a range of situations. 
  • Physical development  involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive. To be able to develop their co-ordination, control and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity and be able to make healthy choices in relation to food. 
  • Personal social emotional development involves helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves and others. Form positive relationships and develop respect for others. Develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings. Understand appropriate behaviours in groups and to have confidence in their own abilities.

Specific areas

arts and design class

  • Mathematics involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using number calculating, simple addition and subtraction problems, describe shapes, spaces and measure.
  • Expressive arts and design involves enabling children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials, as well as providing opportunities and encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, role-play and design and technology.
  • Knowledge and understanding of the world involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, place, technology and the environment. 
  • Literacy development involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Children must be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems and other written materials) to ignite their interest.

Our Approach

We use the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which sets the standards, that at Spring Buds day nursery all children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. We promote teaching and learning to ensure children’s school readiness and which gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.

Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs.

Children develop and learn in different ways and different rates.  Our EYFS educational programme caters to all children in our care including children with special educational needs and disabilities. 


At Spring Buds days nursery our routine, activities and nursery environments are designed to enhance these four principals offering children opportunities to play and practise their growing skills.

Our practitioners use ‘tapestry’ online learning journal to observe, share photographs and progress of their key children with the parents/careers.
