Our Curriculum

Bright Beginnings Nursery follows the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) curriculum. This covers the period from birth until the end of their Reception year at school. The EYFS breaks children’s learning into seven areas, three prime areas and four specific ones.

Prime Areas
Personal, Social and Emotional Development Making relationships
Self-confidence and self awareness
Managing feelings and behaviour
Physical Development Health and self-care
Moving and handling
Communication and Language Listening and attention
Specific Area
Literacy Reading
Mathematics Numbers
Shape, space and measure
Understanding the World People and communities
The World
Expressive Arts and Design Exploring and using media and material
Being imaginative


Our free-flow system ensures that the children have time to explore activities and experiences in all of these areas of learning inside and out. This means that our children are able to meet every development need from music and movement, stories, singing, sand and water, messy play, role play, the natural world, ICT, Literacy and number fun and much, much more.

A Unique Child

Every child has an individual plan which is centred around your child’s interests. This is used to help identify strengths and areas of support to ensure your child is developing in all areas of learning. The children have individual learning journeys recording your child’s time with us. We also track your child’s
learning observations, photographs and tracking sheets. We encourage our families to be as involved in our nursery as the children are so we include parent’s views in all of the children’s learning journeys. We also provide a detailed daily verbal handover which includes important information such as; how much food they have eaten, what they have enjoyed doing and how long they have slept.
