Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Nursery Curriculum

Our approach to learning

The learning programme in our Nursery is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Our aim is to provide holistic learning in a safe, happy and stimulating environment through which all children are challenged and make outstanding progress. To develop confident, happy children, equipped with foundations to nurture a lifelong love of learning. To engage with and value contributions from parents, professionals and the local community to ensure the best outcomes for children and the best value for Oasis Academy Ryelands.

We foster a harmonious atmosphere which supports and promotes self-esteem. We build confident communicators supporting every child as an individual across development in all areas of the Early Years and Foundation Stage. We help every child to grow up feeling confident about their own identity, in a spirit of friendship, understanding fairness and the rights of others, valuing diversity, and ready to be a British citizen.

Topics covered in our Nursery Curriculum include the following:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and language 
  • Physical Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

We want our parents and carers to feel in the loop when it comes to their child's education, therefore each year we make sure a full breakdown of what is taught within our classrooms is available online. For a full breakdown of the curriculum and what is covered in each of the topics listed above, please see the 7 Learning Areas below.
