Farmside Child Day Care – Our Aim
At Farmside we aim to provide a fun filled, warm, and safe environment that is based around each child’s individual learning and developmental needs. In order to do this, Farmside has adapted a free flow play system (children are able to help themselves to toys and equipment). This is to encourage the children to become competent learners who are able to manage their learning and gain independence through play.
Farmside aims to meet each child’s individual needs using the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. We have assessment processes in place to ensure your child’s safety and well-being is supported which enables them to learn new skills, develop their understanding and gain new knowledge throughout the 7 areas of learning and development. We have adopted planning in the moment which enables us to focus on how your child learns through play, exploration, activity and thinking. All of these assessments are included in an online learning journey for your child.
Parents are encouraged to contribute to their child’s learning journey and this available for them to view online at any time.
The setting is a very personal and family orientated place where all the children are seen as an extension to the family.
Farmside values its ability to create a family orientated atmosphere with children, parents and staff members making up our very own Farmside community.
We aim to offer a stimulating, positive inclusive environment. We pride ourselves on being different and offering a setting which is totally focused on the children and where they are seen as the heart of the setting.
