Learning and Standards

We take a Froebelian approach to education at Truro Nursery School.  More information can be found here.

Children aged 2, 3 and 4 learn by playing and exploring; being active and through creative and critical thinking. At Truro Nursery School we ensure children are able to do this both indoors and outdoors in our wonderful environment. We watch children carefully and listen to their ideas so that our curriculum reflects both their interests and their needs. For this reason we don’t follow topics but we do follow themes throughout the year. Our overall annual plan can be found here:

Add document in shared, curriculum, curriculum overview latest We adhere to the statutory framework for the EYFS Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage ( and use supplementary materials to support our curriculum e.g. Development matters Development Matters - Non-statutory curriculum guidance for the early years foundation stage ( and birth to 5 matters Birth To 5 Matters – Guidance by the sector, for the sector

We have identified core experiences which the children will explore every day such as outdoor play, books and stories and music as well as enhancements to the curriculum which they will encounter regularly for example trips, woodwork and cooking. Our aim is that children will engage in memorable first hand experiences everyday which will prepare them for their future lives.
