Our Approach

At Harris Academy Chobham Nursery, our mission is to provide a nurturing, caring and inspiring provision which supports the early development of our youngest pupils. 

The Early Years Nursery Curriculum 

The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum is made up of seven areas of learning: 3 prime areas and 4 specific. 

E3198a9f 7b8a 4ef7 a820 163bbd87df98 2

The prime areas of learning are:

- Communication and Language

- Physical Development

- Personal, Social and Emotional Development

 The specific areas of learning are:

- Literacy

- Mathematics

- Understanding of the World

- Expressive Arts and Design

In our nursery, we carefully plan for all of the prime and specific areas across our indoor and outdoor provision to maximise all of the learning opportunities available. Learning is a balance of child-initiated and adult-supported with a strong focus on developing new vocabulary to enable communication and language skills.

The child is at the centre of everything that we do at Chobham and children are given every opportunity to follow activities that interest them and to learn through play. Our nursery pupils learn within a stimulating environment which encourages them to learn and play in a variety of ways. Our staff give children the opportunity to investigate and build on their interests and extend their knowledge and skills. Children have opportunities to be creative; develop their problem solving skills and they have high levels of wellbeing. We have happy, stimulated children who are confident, happy, independent and motivated.


D6b7a9a0 c35e 4338 a388 dc99ca4b05adThe Key Person Approach

Each child has a personal Key Person in nursery. The Key Person is responsible for developing a detailed knowledge and understanding of your child and developing a strong relationship with them. Your child’s Key Person will share information with you and will appreciate lots of information in return. They build strong, professional partnerships with yourself and will support all aspects of nursery life, including settling in and transition times. The key person approach gives every child the reassurance to feel secure and cared for, helping them to become familiar with the nursery environment and to feel confident and safe within it. They will observe them in their play so that they can plan future opportunities and experiences to the best ability to meet their needs and interests.

Nursery children learn best when they can satisfy their endless curiosity about the world around them through active play and experimentation. Our outdoor learning environment at Chobham gives little children with big imaginations just that. We provide thoughtful, imaginative and stimulating outdoor spaces to explore. Every week, the children have a Nature Nurture session in our wider school grounds with lessons planned from a trained Forest School teacher. Nature is certainly our greatest teacher and at Chobham, our outdoor learning provision is second to none. We play outdoors in all weathers and seasons. Our nursery children also go out on trips to farms, local areas of interest and museums to build their cultural capital.
