In The Moment


Teachable Moments during Child Led Play

"No set ‘planning’ here! We are led by your child’s interests."

We look for opportunities to allow learning to take place through child-initiated play.

We provide opportunities and environments that stimulate curiosity.

We observe and listen closely so you can follow the child’s lead.

We pick up on the thing/place/person/idea that has sparked the child’s interest.

We use open ended questions that ask for a description, rather than a yes/no or other single word answer – these usually start with what/how/why rather that do/is/can - (‘What do you like about that?’ rather than ‘Do you like that?’)

We praise and reinforce positive learning experiences.

We record both practitioner/child interactions and child/child interactions.

We take photographs of this and add to Tapestry as another way of recording progress.

We use some time for reflecting with the children what they have done/learned/found interesting during that session and feed this into your records.

"The adult goes to the child. The adult doesn’t call the child to come to them."

Out in the Van


We have an 8 Seater van which we use daily. We take small groups out for real life experiences to extend on their interests and needs. We often go out to the local beaches, woods, moors and towns. the children love going out in the van and get so much from these visits.
