At Ark John Keats Academy nursery, teachers work together to foster a love of learning for all children. We believe in creating a safe, stimulating and exciting environment that builds on each individuals wants, needs and interests. We deliver a rich and diverse curriculum of structured and focused activities alongside child-initiated, play-based learning. We use Circle Time and a range of inspiring stories to encourage personal and emotional growth, enabling children to develop strong and meaningful relationships with adults and their peers. We want children to be happy, confident and independent learners who leave our Early Years as resilient, reflective and respectful individuals with a passion for learning.

In line with government guidelines, our planning and assessment of activities and experiences are based on the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, drawn up by the Department for Education.
