What is Continous Provision?    Continous provision is the resources provided in the Nursery for children to interact with creatively.  The idea of continuous provision is that it encourages the children to learn in the absence of an adult.  To encourage children to challenge themselves we change the continuous provision in our Nursery on a regular basis.  This keeps the children from gravitating towards the same activities that are familiar and encourages them to try out different activities.  Continous provision is a very important part of learning in Early Years and in our Nursery.   It encourages children the freedom to explore and become independent in making choices whilst challenging their learning.

Learning Journeys
A learning journey is a celebration of a child's achievements and interests during the time they spend in our Nursery.  It shows the journey of a child's learning and development through carefully chosen, dated and sequenced observations, annotated photographs and quotes from the child.  We would appreciate contributions from parents and carers.  Please feel free to upload photos and comments to Class Dojo and we will add them to the Learning Journeys.  Thank you.
