Our learning goals…


We are child-centred and aim to provide stimulating activities and exercises that are based on each individual child’s needs, likes and stages of development.

We implement the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)  curriculum which is flexible and takes into account the needs of the whole child. Through both organised adult-led play and child- directed activities, we aim to encourage children to achieve a balance in their overall development as a young person.

Areas of Learning and Development are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication &  Language
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding of the world
  • Physical Development
  • Expressive Arts and Design

The Key Persons compile individual actionplans for each child in the nursery and observe their development in all areas on a regular basis. All activities are planned in advance to encourage personal growth in all areas of development. Individual reviews are carried out each term.

Bermondsey Community Nursery is inspected by Ofsted (Office for Standards in Education). By achieving a “Good” standard of inspection, we are named providers of nursery education in Southwark Early Years Development and Childcare Plan directory/Southwark Family Information Service.
