Activities and Play


Children learn when they are in a safe and caring environment where they are stimulated through play.


Babies and young children develop best when they are in a caring relationship with an adult. A baby will learn to walk faster when they have a safe pair of arms to walk towards and learn to talk, when they have an adult listening and responding to them.



I will provide opportunities for child led play and a range of child centred activities that support the 7 areas of learning and development in accordance with the EYFS:


  •      Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding The World
  • Art and Design

I will create individual activity plans for each child in my care in close consultation with parents, they will be play  based and centered around each childs interests, they will be reviewed and adapted to ensure that planned activities are meeting the needs of the child.
