Baby with Teddy Bear


All our learning at Chuckles Private Day Nursery is based around the EYFS development framework set out by the government standard. This is to ensure we can provide the best start to your child's future through quality. 


Our nursery practitioners carefully plan learning and activities through 7 areas of learning ensuring that planning is unique and individual to each child to meet their individual needs.

The 7 areas of learning are split in to three ‘Prime’ areas of learning and four ‘Specific’ areas of learning. the prime areas are important because they lay the foundations for children’s success in all areas of learning and of life:

• Communication and Language
• Personal, Social and Emotional
• Physical

As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. The specific areas provide the range of experiences and opportunities for children to broaden their knowledge and skills:

• Literacy
• Mathematics
• Understanding the World
• Expressive Art and Design

The framework allows our team to monitor and ensure each and every child's development is on track and meeting their development milestones. 

The managment team work very closely with the team to track children's development stages on a term by term basis, this helps to ensure any concerns in learning development can be identified. 

This allows us to develop an action plan as focal points to improve on any identified areas of concern for the child. 

Our team help the children to learn by providing them with educational activities, and different experiences through topics and events. 


As well as learning through active play, much of our under-3s’ learning stems from their drive to investigate their surroundings with all their senses. This includes fun with water, sand and other malleable materials.


Floor easels support early mark-making and finger painting, which are large-motor and sensory experiences at this age.


Children are naturally eager to learn about the world and everything in it.

When their interest is engaged, they push the boundaries of their knowledge, hungry for more. We tune in to each individual child’s curiosity and nurture it.

Imagination’s significance cannot be overstated as children are the world’s future inventors, scientists, writers, thinkers and leaders.


Children need to move. Body and brain develop together, and physical development occurs through using the body, moving it in space and gravity.

We understand the importance of physical activity and have the space and resources to allow this to be realised.

We have two fully enclosed outdoor play areas to allow all the children to access physical development at all times.
