Educational Provision

Little Ripley Education

Here at Little Ripley Day Nursery our key focus is your child’s development. Our aim is to enable your child to not only reach their full potential, but to surpass this, giving them the best opportunity when starting school.

The starting point to achieving this goal is recognising your child’s interests; their likes and dislikes. This is then coupled with the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance to plan your child’s unique learning journey as they learn through play. Your child’s learning journey will be specific to them, as no child is the same, each individual and unique.

Their journey will encompass exploring, discovering and interacting through both adult and child led activities which are adapted to suit each particular child, allowing accessibility to all. These are then further enhanced through our wide variety of resources and range of media, all of which provide opportunities and encouragement of sharing your child’s thoughts, ideas and feelings.

Our partnership with you is utilised to further your child’s progress. As a parent or guardian, you will be kept well informed of your child’s individual learning journey, as it will be carefully documented, stage by stage, in your child’s interactive learning diary, with regular progress being issued to you.
