Our aim in to enable each child in our care to develop to their full potential socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually in a stimulated, secure and safe environment. To enable children to become successful learners, confident individual, responsible citizens and effective contributers. At Apple Tree Nursery we treat every child as an individual, giving them support, challenge and care in a way that build confidence and extends learning. The staff have a good knowledge of children’s learning and development. Staff use the curriculum for excellence and pre birth to 3 to plan learning activities and experiences. They continually observe children to ensure that the experiences and activities provided are suited to the needs of each individual child as well as being stimulating and challenging. Staff compile tracking sheets for each individual child (observations) to note their achievement and to plan their next steps in learning. All learning experiences are planned in accordance with local and national guidelines, to allow staff to make specific observations.
