Within Playbox, all children are supported in developing their potential at their own pace.

Learning for young children is a rewarding and enjoyable experience in which they explore, investigate, discover, create, practice, repeat, revise and consolidate their developing knowledge, skills and understanding. During the foundation stage, many of these aspects of learning are brought together through play and communication.

Our key person system enables us to ensure a planned curriculum tailored to the needs of each individual child. By means of developmentally appropriate play activities and a high level of individual adult input.

The prime motivation for children’s learning is their joy in life and the pleasure they gain from the experiences offered to them.

The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum for children 0 to 5 years

Children start to learn about the world around them from the moment they are born. The care and education offered by the Playbox team help children to continue to do this, by, providing them with interesting activities that are appropriate for their age and stage of development.

Children in our care will always be encouraged to try something new and to take that extra step, whether its on a climbing frame, a slide or a swing, children learn by simply having a go! Occasionally this can result in a bump or scrape, but often after a cuddle and reassurance they are usually ready for another attempt. Learning what it is like to take a little risk (in a safe environment) at an early stage is an essential part of growing up and enables your child to discover just what they can achieve.

Playbox team will observe all the children in their group and you are welcome to discuss your child with any team member at a convenient time. These continuous observations enable us to plan for your child’s next stage of development, and to be sure we meet all their needs within the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.
