At Home Grown Children's Eco Nursery we provide our children with experiences and support to encourage them to develop a positive sense of themselves, their peers and their environment. Through stimulating and practical activities which guide the children to ask questions and consider consequences, we promote an understanding that people, animals, plants and habitats can live and work together harmoniously.
Children evolve from day to day and it is through language and communication that they learn to express themselves and respond to situations. We expose our children to many rich and diverse methods of communication developing skills and confidence to freely express themselves, answer and consider questions.
Our approach to Mathematics is to create a curiosity and sense of achievement through practical and vibrant activities. By combining counting, numerals, comparative language and simple sums with fun, organic and relevant tasks, we strive to meet each child's full potential and give them the skills and knowledge they require for the next step in their learning development.
One of our main objectives is to help children make sense of their surroundings and the world. Children will be encouraged to question the source and origins of their food, toys and furniture and learn to gain a respect and love for life.
At such a young age, physical development is extremely important. We strive to motivate our children to use their bodies in an independent, challenging and interesting manner. Our indoor and outdoor space has been designed to encourage children to push boundaries and develop movement skills through guidance and praise. Using natural play-equipment children will be given the opportunity to discover our environment and learn about the importance of keeping healthy, active and in tune with nature.
At Home Grown Nursery we are committed to providing opportunities for children to experiment and fulfill their natural ability to be creative. As well as offering opportunities for children to express their feelings and ideas through movement, art, music, dance and role play, core skills such as literacy and numeracy will be taught using creative and engaging methods. Arts and music that has made an impact on the world will be introduced and different mediums explored. Children will have the opportunity to creatively explore natural elements,environments and habitats to appreciate our planet's natural creative development.
Through the exploration of books, poems and songs our children develop a passion for new words and sounds (phonics) and the skills to mark make and form letters.
