Our Curriculum

Our Curriculum has been influenced  by the Reggio Emilia approach which celebrates our children's depth of wonder and joy in the world and engages them and their families in this exploration.

We aim to provide a broad and balanced programme of challenging play activities and learning opportunities arising from both the children's interests and the learning intentions relevant to the six key areas of the Early Years Curriculum:

  • The Arts
  • Language Development
  • Early Mathmatical Experiences
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development and Movement
  • The World Around Us

We foster strong links with the Primary School, particularly with the P1 teacher. This helps to ensure that the transistion for your child is a smooth and happy progression from Nursery to Primary Education.
