Here at Rocking Horse Kindergarten – Birmingham high standards are achieved by implementing the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) THROUGH 7 Areas of Learning. These are Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
Babies from six weeks are looked after by a caring staff team in a calm, quiet and stimulating room filled with soft cushions, feeding chairs, cots, colourful displays and mobiles. This is a safe environment. On a daily basis the babies join in sensory play, exploring and investigating through messy play and most importantly having lots of fun.
In the Toddler room your child will enjoy free play, group story time, singing sessions and structured play, promoting their social skills and satisfying their inquisitive minds, we provide more challenging activities including sand, water, creative play , building, puzzles and the home corner are just a few of the activities your child will enjoy. This is also the room where we encourage and support children with potty training.
Our Pre school rooms allow children to become more independent, the preschool room is based on free flow allowing children to access activities in their own time. A preschoolers day will start off with registration time and end with circle time. Throughout the course of the day we offer stimulating, exciting activities to stretch skills and imagination and will give your child a head start for when they begin school.
All children at Rockinghorse Kindergarten are allocated a keyworker. The key worker will build a close relationship with yourself and your child, they will ensure that your child’s individual needs are met and give you feedback on a daily basis all the important things a parent likes to know including how your child has eaten, toileting, what your child has been playing with.
