ABOUT THE SETTING
Children learn best when they are immersed in real experiences and have time to rehearse, explore, discover and try out their own and new ideas. When they initiate their own ideas and pursue their interests and schematic play, they become 'lost in their learning', developing perseverance and curiosity. They learn best when the environment they are in provides them with the materials, space and security they need to make their own decisions and learn and work at their own speed., an enabling environment. They need to feel valued and have their attempts and efforts valued too. They need to feel celebrated and know that their unique qualities will be recognised and acknowledged. At Little Acorns we know that we are all different, but that we all belong together. We understand the important values that help us to learn and play together as friends, respect, responsibility, courage, honesty, joy, tolerance, kindness and forgiveness.
Learning through play...
We provide exciting play based childcare for under fives in our own home. Our 'secret woodland' provides the opportunity to explore learning about and in the outdoors throughout the year, in all weathers.
These wonderful, memorable experiences are nurtured in our setting through play and active learning, developing exploration, discovery, imagination and creativity.
The wilderness is within their grasp through the woodlands at the bottom of the garden!
