How We Learn at 3 Bears

Our children learn through play, the most effective and engaging way a child can grow and develop. 

The Early Years- "This is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born up until the age of 5, their early years experience should be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure; and support their development, care and learning needs."

Here at 3 Bears Nursery we work along side the Early Years Foundation Stage (the EYFS) 2012 framework, from birth to 5 years. This is the basis of the British curriculum for children in the early years. We ensure that all children who attend the nursery have the opportunity to learn through play in a homely environment.

We plan for the individual interests and needs of each child as we recognise the importance of each child being unique here at Three Bears. This is a key theme that runs throughout the EYFS, alongside fostering positive relationships, creating an enabling environment and in turn  working on each child's learning and development.

We also see each child's level of wellbeing and involvement as crucial in their development. This is monitored on a regular basis and addressed, as an engaged and happy child is much more likely to thrive.

Learning Book

Throughout the setting we use Learning Book, an electronic way to capture observations and monitor your child's learning and development.

In partnership with Learning book we are able to give a log in to each parent for their child's account so that they are able to access it from home at any time, using a computer, tablet or phone and look at the photos, videos, captions and level of development indicated. We find this is an effective way to capture moments in each child's day at nursery.

Once your child finishes their time in the setting parents are able to purchase books or a memory stick filled with the contents of their child's individual learning journal so that it is saved forever.
