Activities and Education

All our children have many opportunities each and every day to learn through their play.

This is further enhanced by following the guidelines set down by the government, The Early Years Foundation Stage, commonly referred to as the EYFS. These guidelines were made mandatory for all setting from September 2008 and reviewed and revised for September 2012.

Busikids Manager Charlotte has ensured that this update is implemented by the team of nursery workers who attend regular training sessions and staff meetings to keep up to date with current guidelines, so ensuring continuous provision for all children.

Each room has its own way of planning that  incorporates observations on all the children to assess their progress and to then plan for the next steps this is to  ensure that all children are continually given tailored opportunities to aid further development in all the areas of learning.

Each child's progress is also individually tracked to ensure that their needs are being met and they are achieving in their development,  the children's interests and home life are incorporated into the curriculum wherever possible.  We teach this through the materials and resources we use, inviting professionals in to talk to the children, and going on outings.

We ensure that the planning reflects a variety of religions and cultures, local communities and the much wider world.  

Every child has a Learning Journal that is kept as a record of achievements and to show thier progress, this is in the form of a scrapbook with photographic evidence and written observations, this is available for parents at any time and goes home with the child when complete.

Regular Parents evenings are also held for one to one time with your child's key worker to allow a relaxed time to be able to discuss your child without the pressures of it being drop off or collection time.

Maraca Jacks Music and Dance for little ones

As part of our Education and activities we bring in the local Maraca Jacks team who have a huge range of different songs and accessories that the children of all ages through the nursery benefit from.

It is always lovely to see different faces within Busikids and  to see the children grow with confidence and join in more and more, then there are the children who will happily dance the day away with little encouragement too, it is always good for the regular staff team to be able  join in and play with the children whilst learning new songs too.
