Our teaching philosophy
Barnkids believe that children have an innate desire to learn and they learn best through play, when they are having fun and have developed trusted relationships with those around them. Our job is to create the optimum conditions for learning and fun by ensuring our children have high levels of wellbeing, engagement and motivation in an enabling environment that allows a large proportion of child initiated play with a measured degree of risk.
Like most other settings in the UK we adhere to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and understand the importance of the seven areas of learning split into:
Prime: Communication and Language; Physical Development; Personal, Social and Emotional Development and
Sub-prime: Understanding the World; Arts and Creativity; Literacy; Maths.
For children under the age of 3 we focus on ensuring our children are secure in their learning and development in the Prime Areas.
We strive to have a highly skilled workforce whose expertise enables them to recognise every child as a unique individual and provide accordingly for them. What engages one child, might not necessarily engage another.
