At Crown Kindergarten we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and we believe in learning through play and preparation for school.
We recognise each child’s individuality, efforts and achievements and, therefore, plan a curriculum that stimulates a love of learning. Our vision encompasses our fun approach to learning, meaning that each child develops into a happy and confident individual when encouraged to be independent within a safe stimulating setting.
A rich learning environment is provided where children are given appropriate responsibility and are allowed to make errors, decisions and choices. We believe that children learn by ‘doing’ and our staff fully support and encourage them in their individual journeys of self-awareness and developmental growth. Our beautiful garden is a wonderful place where the children can enjoy themselves, utilising a wide range of equipment and play resources.
Children are capable of constructing their own learning and are naturally curious about the environment they are in. We have a strong focus on social collaboration, working in groups, where each child is an equal participant, having their thoughts and questions valued. We as a provider of quality care and education, provide an environment for children to feel safe to investigate and explore with curiosity and wonder.
We actively encourage the children to learn respect for each other and the environment within which they live, and we ensure that there is equality of opportunity for all the children in our care.
