How we provide for development and learning
The provision for children's development and learning is guided by The Early Years Foundation Stage (DfE 2012). Our provision reflects the four guiding themes and principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage. Children start to learn about the world around them from the moment they are born. The care and education offered by our setting helps children to continue to do this by providing all of the children with interesting activities that are appropriate for their age and stage of development.

At Benington Nursery we will provide a high staff to child ratio to ensure that children have sufficient individual attention and to guarantee care and education to a high quality. All members of staff are checked for criminal records through the Criminal Records Bureau in accordance with Ofsted's requirements. Full staff details are in the prospectus.
Our Early Years Curriculum provides an excellent framework to ensure each child receives the care and education for every aspect of their development. Effective learning is carefully planned in order to meet the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Children from the age of two follow the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ Curriculum. From September 2008 the Government stipulated that all early years education is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Individual activities are carefully planned to ensure that they challenge each child to develop their interests, skills and enthusiasm.
