Our Aims & Objectives

Parents want the reassurance that their child will receive the individual attention that will give them the opportunity to grow and develop at their own pace. They want to know that their child is in a secure, warm and friendly environment with caring staff.

Our main objectives are:

  • To produce happy, confident children who enjoy the activities they take part in.

  • To provide happy staff who have the right qualifications and experience, and who will be able to make the children feel secure and happy.

  • To encourage parents to take part in their children’s learning and development.

  • To provide a safe, warm, stimulating learning environment to the children

  • To monitor the progress of children through observation and development charts

  • To ensure that parents know that their comments and suggestions will be valued.

  • To provide toys, resources and equipment that is age appropriate.

  • To provide adequate supervision to children involved in different activities

  • To provide a stable routine to the children

  • To encourage good behaviour and manners in the children.

Learning & Education

Here at Bear Hugs Day Nursery we observe our key children, following the structure and curriculum of the EYFS to gain an understanding of how they develop and the style in which they learn. From these observations we are able to tailor our provision and the activities we offer for each individual child’s stage and needs.

Through this we strive for every child to achieve their full potential and beyond, gaining the most from the time they spend with us. 

We cover the seven learning areas of development of the early year’s foundation stage which are:

  • Personal, Social and emotional development

  • Communication & Language

  • Mathematics

  • Understanding The World

  • Physical Development

  • Expressive Arts & Design

  • Literacy
