Learning and Development

At Butterflies we believe that a children's learning comes from a freedom to explore, investigate and discover both indoors and out. We plan experiences and learning opportunities for individual children based on their interests as well as their abilities. Taking our lead from the child we are able to engage them in stimulating activities that capture their imagination and encourage them to explore their own theories to develop new ideas.

Both Nurseries follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which provides the framework of our service, and as a result any planned activities are created to promote development in the following 7 areas:

Prime Areas:

  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language

Specific areas:

  • Knowledge and Understanding
  • Maths
  • Literacy
  • Expressive arts and design
