Curriculum

Overview

Introduction

Children joining our Nursery have already learnt a great deal. Many have been learning in one of the various educational settings that exist in our community. At Tomorrow’s Leaders we offer our children a curriculum which:
  • Builds on what your children already know
  • Ensures that no child is excluded or disadvantaged
  • Has a range of starting points, allowing children of all abilities to be challenged
  • Matches the needs of young children
  • Provides learning activities both indoors and outdoors
  • Creates a rich and stimulating environment
  • Tomorrow’s Leaders Nursery Curriculum Policy

    This policy represents the agreed principles for Tomorrow’s Leaders. All Nursery staff have agreed to this policy.

    Our Aims:

  • To provide the best care we possibly can in a safe, secure, and stimulating environment
  • To offer equal opportunities for each and every child
  • To encourage independence and the development of self-esteem, a sense of achievement, and self-confidence
  • To foster in children a caring and respectful attitude toward peers and adults
  • To encourage responses to significant experiences, allowing children to show a range of feelings when appropriate
  • To develop an awareness in children of the needs of others
  • Music at Tomorrow’s Leaders

    At Tomorrow’s Leaders Nursery we take great pride in our unrivalled ability to offer a wide and challenging curriculum that provides all children with teachers who specialize in the creative aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage. We are fortunate to have talented musicians on our staff team. This enables us to offer each child expert additional music lessons where they experience instruments being played to accompany singing times. These sessions are often a child’s first experience of live music, and we believe it contributes to their musical success later on in their schooling. The vast majority of Tomorrow’s Leaders children are encouraged to play at least one instrument. Our Christmas and summer concerts are always great fun, and they bring our children and parents together to celebrate learning.

    At Tomorrow’s Leaders Nursery we take great pride in our unrivalled ability to offer a wide and challenging curriculum that provides all children with teachers who specialize in the physical aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage. This means that all children in Tomorrow’s Leaders nursery have a weekly lesson with a member of the Games staff from the Full-Fitness Foundation. Not only is it thrilling for the children to experience outdoor games with older children, but the teachers are wonderful role models and getting to know them well also supports a smooth transition into Reception. The summer term sports day is your chance to see a demonstration lesson in operation and watch the various skills learnt throughout the year in our games and activities.

    Additional Learning

    Special Educational Needs

    Children with Special Educational Needs have learning difficulties that call for special provisions to be made. All children may have special needs at some time in their lives. Children may have special educational needs if they have significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children the same age, or if they have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of the educational facilities that are provided for children of the same age.

    At Tomorrow’s Leaders, SENCO manages the day-to-day operation of our policies, coordinates the provisions for and manages the responses to children’s special needs. They also support and advise colleagues, oversee the records of all children with Special Educational Needs, act as link with external agencies and other support agencies, monitor and evaluate the Special Educational Needs provisions, manage a range of resources, human and material, to enable appropriate provisions for children with Special Education Needs, and contribute to the professional development of all staff. If you would like to discuss the group’s ability to meet your own child’s special needs please talk to Samantha McDevitt and Charlotte Figueira.
