Aims

At Bo Peep's, the quality of care and the happiness of your child is our main concern. We feel that enjoyable and interesting experiences are the key to positive attitudes towards learning, so the emphasis is on learning through fun.

A wide range of toys and resources are available to encourage the children to reach their full potential. Observations of the children are undertaken during their play to enable the staff to plan activities based on their interests and to widen their knowledge.

Our daily activities are based on the 4 themes of "unique child", "positive relationships", "enabling environment" and "physical development", and cover the 6 areas of learning:

  1. Personal, social and emotional development
  2. Communication, language and literacy
  3. Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy
  4. Knowledge and understanding of the world
  5. Physical development
  6. Creative development

By covering these we aim to achieve the following outcomes:

Our aim is to promote a learning environment both indoor and outdoor to give our children the ability to go on the next stage confidently when it is time for them to leave for "big school".
