Our Learning

At Glenbrae we split the academic year into Learning Blocks. For each of these a story, rhyme and backdrop theme will be chosen by the children. This will be decided by staff displaying a choice of books and props that children have shown an interest in. Children will then be encouraged to make a choice. This can be adapted to meet individual needs of children and this will be our backdrop theme. The choices on offer will be informed by children’s interests. It is important to remember that our approach is child centered and this should be promoted. Learning does not always need to be linked to backdrop themes. Each Learning Block can last 4-6 weeks however this can be adapted depending on levels of child engagement and interest.

Each child’s individuality is celebrated, and their care & learning needs, support and challenge are nurtured and met through high quality play and care spaces, positive and sensitive interactions, stimulating and fun experiences and close partnerships with parents, carers and the community. Sunshine Room EYECO and Support Staff encourage children to explore, discover and investigate their world as they become more independent and support children in developing confidence, enthusiasm and a love of learning

Butterfly Room 3 – 5 years
The 3-5room curriculum is planned as a team with parents, staff and most importantly children working together. Staff provide
opportunities for children to explore, investigate and lead their own learning at their own pace and naturally through play. Play brings
about opportunities for children to develop relationships, language, creativity and co-ordination skills. We value the support given to us
by parents and recognise them as the prime educator. Working together we can support children to develop the skills to become
confident individuals, successful learners, effective contributors and responsible citizens.
