Activities at Glen Jakes

We use our knowledge and experience to provide naturally inspiring and child led learning. We provide activities that will develop each child holistically through their own interests abilities and needs.

Examples of the activities here at Glen Jakes Nursery

Physical Development

Personal Social and Emotional

Expressive Arts and Design

Understanding the World

Communication and Language



Each group within nursery follows a planning system, which is followed through the day to help and encourage all children to develop to their own abilities. This is based on children's interests and adult led activities. Children are observed and monitored so that their Key Worker's are aware of each child's needs.

For all our children of three years and above we have two rooms dedicated to the implementation of the "Early Learning Goals" which enables us to teach our children six main areas of learning. This is carried out by following a termly theme, and the "Early Learning Goals" are incorporated into the theme.

This makes the learning process more fun! We provide all our parent(s)/guardians with a booklet describing the "Early Learning Goals" in more depth. At present we are following the current Ofsted legislation to ensure "Every Child Matters".
