All children at Monarchs are encouraged to learn through play. Our Curriculum includes all the key areas of the new Early Years Foundation Stage and is designed to meet the needs of each individual child and ensures each child is provided with opportunities to help them learn and develop. Monarchs have qualified teachers dedicated to achieving the highest level of teaching across the curriculum. Long, Medium and Short term plans are all displayed in each of the rooms along with details of all our topics and events which will be covered in the coming months.
Each child has their own key person to enable them to feel reassured, safe and cared for within our setting. Each of our areas have their own qualified teacher. The teacher and key workers keep a detailed 'Learning Journey' of the child’s progress during their time with us. These records are available to be viewed and discussed at any time by parents, who are always encouraged to add details of their child’s experiences from outside the nursery.
Parent Communication books are filled in on a daily basis for each child detailing important information; sleep times, nappy changes, foods consumed and quantity, activities taken part in. All parents also receive informal verbal feedback at the end of each day as constant communication is so important to us.
Parent’s evenings are held three times a year and are an opportunity for parent’s to discuss their child’s progress on a formal one to one basis. We pride ourselves with the close relationship we have with our parents. This gives parents the peace of mind that we are always approachable.
