At Rosie's Childcare our primary focus is on encouraging personal, social and emotional development, through a range of activities that are appropriate for each stage of your child's development.
We strongly believe that by providing children and babies with an environment that is vibrant, fun and interactive, it can significantly improve their confidence levels, social interaction and learning capabilities.
We also run daily preschool sessions from 9am - 11:30am as part of our normal daily service for children aged 3 and over.
During these sessions children are encouraged to develop new and existing skills in all areas of their development to get them school ready!
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum for preschools and cover activities and subjects such as phonics, shapes, colours, the environment, cultural and religious events, weather, handwriting, health and safety, physical education, food and nutrition, makaton, reading, languages, science, team building, local events, discussion/circle time, alphabet, rhythm and rhyme.

For our babies, toddlers and pre-school children, we subtly integrate the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum into our daily activities.
The EYFS helps us to prepare the younger children for school, giving them the broad knowledge and skills required to provide the right foundations for progressing well through school and life in general.
We also ensure that our babies and older children receive the right level of learning and stimulation for their development stage and we actively encourage healthy interaction and play between all age groups.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. This is divided into 3 prime areas of development:
• Communication and language
• Physical development
• Personal, social and emotional development
There are also four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. The specific areas are:
• Understanding the world
• Expressive arts and design
The areas of development are very much interlinked and throughout the day your child will experience a balance of activities from all the areas. Our aim is to continue to build on your child’s skills that they have already begun to develop in all of these aspects of learning. All areas of learning are delivered through a wide range of planned activities in our indoor and outdoor environments. There is a balance of adult led and child initiated activities. We plan using input from your child about their interests and passions.
