Leigh's Nurseries Newcastle

Education at Leighs!


Happy Friday everyone – fingers crossed we get a bit of sunshine this weekend!
Here at Leigh’s we pride ourselves on delivering OUTSTANDING education to all children every single day, a reason many parents choose to stay with us until their children reach the age of 5.¬†We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework for children. It identifies 7 areas of learning and development.
These are divided into 3 prime areas:
(1) Communication & Language, (2) Physical Development and (3) Personal, Social & Emotional Development.
And 4 specific areas: (1) Literacy, (2) Mathematics, (3) Understanding the World and (4) Expressive Arts & Design.
Through exploring these 4 topics we engage the children and kick start their love of learning from a very young age. We carry out exciting, fun adult/child led activities each day focusing on letters and sounds, numbers, shapes, colours and mark making. These are balanced around child initiated free play and following child interests, creating an environment where children can learn with enjoyment and challenge freely.
In all of our Nurseries the use of space, resources and activities are set up so that children can stumble from one learning opportunity to another without even realising it. Our amazing staff are always on hand to support, encourage and feed children with endless knowledge. They know each of their individual key children and offer them quality learning and educational experiences each and everyday, preparing them for their transition to school!
Lots of love as always!
