NURSERY CURRICULUM

We know that the early years of a child’s life are crucial to their development and our practitioners work to ensure that every child gets the best possible start in their education at our nurseries.

 

Curriculum for Excellence

We promote play-based education and adhere to national guidance from the Curriculum for Excellence (CfE). The CfE is split into 4 Capacities which are:

  • Successful Learners
  • Confident Individuals
  • Effective Contributors
  • Responsible Citizens

Additionally, the CfE highlights 3 Core Areas for Learning:

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Health & Wellbeing

Learning Experiences planned by our staff integrate the CfE Capacities and Core Areas for Learning, enabling all children to maximise their potential. We are supported in this through partnership working with our local councils.

Additionally, we take guidance from the following resources:

 

Child-Led Learning

Responsive planning is key to the learning opportunities and experiences we offer children at Happitots Nurseries. Our nursery staff facilitate learning activities based on topics chosen by the children in our care. Children are encouraged to share their interests through mind maps and group discussions.  

We believe there's nothing we teach indoors that can't be taught outdoors, and make use of our fantastic outdoor space to support learning through play.

Dear families,

We are pleased to share with you our exciting plans for the future of our nurseries. Bertram Nursery Group has provided a trusted, caring and quality service to thousands of families over two decades.  That isn’t changing, but we want to grow and develop our services, facilities and, most of all, our teams who make our nurseries and kindergartens such inspiring places for children.

That’s why we’re changing our name to Thrive Childcare and Education because that’s at the heart of what we’re about – helping our children, staff and communities to thrive.

While changing our company name and the names of some of our nurseries is the next step of our development journey, we’ll still have the same dedicated teams caring for your children.

The Covid-19 pandemic has reinforced our belief that we need to adapt and invest in a constantly changing world to continue providing the service that parents and children need, tailored to the communities we support across Scotland and North West England.
