All the children at The Wendy Hut Bespoke Daycare are encouraged to learn through play. Our curriculum covers all the key areas of learning and is designed to meet the needs of all the children.
The Wendy Hut bespoke daycare follows The Early Years Foundation Stage( EYFS) which sets out the statutory and non statutory requierements for the care of young children relating to the learning, development and wefare.
The curriculum is built around four principles:
1. A unique child 2. Positive relationships
3. Enabling environments
4. Learning and development
There’s a minimum staff to child ratio of 1:3 in the baby rooms, 1:4 for the 2 to 3 year olds and 1:8 in the 4 to 5 year olds and, as we overstaff, there are usually lots of other adults around to help too.
Parents are kept informed of their childs progress through frequent coffee mornings and daily reports.
1. A unique Child
This area focuses on child development, inclusive practice through the promotion of equality and diversity, keeping safe and health and well being.
2. Positive Relationships:
This theme ensures that through our practice children, staff and parents respect each other and build friendships/relationships. It emphases the importance of communication between the setting and parents and how everyone can support each other so we can learn together and teach effectively. This theme also highlights the importance of and role of a key person within a child's learning.
3. Enabling Environments
This theme incorporates observation, assessment and planning in order to supprt every child's learning. It focuses on the environment both physical and emotional and the impact the wider context (such as the community and outside professtionals) can have on a child.
4. Learning and Development
The Wendy Hut bespoke Daycare focuses on ensuring young children learn through play and exploration, with support for each individual. We encourage active learning, creativity and critical thinking, balancing the need for both the children and adults to lead the learning.
