Coneygarth Farm Day Nursery and Pre-School

At Coneygarth we ensure that children are able to learn and develop in a unique environment where there is always something new to learn!

All state nurseries, private day nurseries and pre-schools deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

So Why Choose Us?

We believe the farm environment offers a unique setting where children can learn, develop and reach their full potential. We have extensive safe outdoor play areas, the children can enjoy farm walks, feeding the lambs, watching the cows, sheep and ponies as well as collecting eggs from the resident hens. We have a large vegetable garden which is tended by the children and a small nursery wood.

The children can also enjoy the outside inside as we have a viewing area to the farm and a web cam based on the farm. The outdoor environment is a rich, valuable and inspiring source of learning and development for our pre-school children.

At Coneygarth Farm Day Nursery and Pre-School we believe that every child deserves the best possible start in life, to help achieve this we deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) in a safe and stimulating environment. We hope to support the children in our care and help them reach their full potential.

The Curriculum

The Early Year Foundation Stage will be covered throughout the nursery day, the curriculum is delivered through play and the planned activities will be suitable for the stage each child has reached. The children will be stretched but not pushed beyond their capabilities so they can continue to enjoy learning.

The planning will be a balance between adult-led and child-initiated activities.

Ongoing observational assessments are carried out to inform planning for each child’s continuing development through play-based activities.

Children are encouraged to make choices and decisions about a range of activities they would like to be involved in throughout the day.

The aim of the EYFS is to help young children achieve the five Every Child Matters outcomes of staying safe, being healthy, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and achieving economic well being.
