Curriculum

Early Years Education and care are the most important moments in every child’s life. These are the foundations on which every child’s future experience and learning are built upon. At the Nishkam Nursery, we aim to ensure that all children from birth up to five years have access to a high standard of play, spiritual development, education and care. Stimulation activities, opportunities and experiences will be provided for the child according to the age and appropriateness.

Seven areas of learning:

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

Our curriculum is play based with high emphasis on free-play and free-flow, and during the day there will be opportunities for problem solving, making choice, exploration, physical play, imaginative play and developing confidence and independence.

Nishkam Nursery is committed to inclusion to provide high standards of education for all children including those that may have a special educational need (SEN), or children who have gifted and talented attributes. As well as having an appointed special educational needs coordinator (SENCO) we work closely with other experts and agencies such as speech and language therapists.

Throughout the setting, practitioners use the 30 Spiritual and moral dispositions within the planning. This helps children to develop spiritual and value-led qualities.

Healthy Lifestyles
Good nourishment and healthy eating are particularly important in the early years of our children’s growth and development. Helping your children to eat healthily in the very early years of life is very important for their health.  Early life experiences of a healthy lifestyle can make a big difference to the types of foods they choose and the amount and types of activity they do throughout life. We provide healthy, well balanced and nutritious vegetarian meals.
Music
Music plays a very important part in our culture. When thinking about everyday life, music is present in a variety of social and educational activities. Research shows that the exposure to music from early childhood onwards helps children to speak more clearly, develop a larger vocabulary, and strengthen social and emotional skills. At Nishkam Nursery, children begin to learn about sound and rhythm through exploring their voice and instruments.
Values

At Nishkam Nursery, we promote the fundamental values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We aim to provide children with opportunities to explore and develop values and beliefs through activities throughout their day at Nursery. Our aim is to embed spiritual and moral values into all aspects of learning at Nishkam Nursery.

Language Sessions

Learning a foreign and new language involves an obvious amount of effort for anyone, either a child or an adult, but the younger you are the easier it is. Studies suggest that at a cognitive and academic level, children learning an additional language are more creative, better at solving complex problems and usually score higher on standardised tests. We have specialist practitioners who plan and teach Languages to children to enhance and compliment further learning.

Our Approach To Education
Early Years Foundation Stage
Early Years Education and care are the most important moments in every child’s life. These are the foundations on which every child’s future experience and learning are built upon. The  Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to five years old. At the Nishkam Nursery, we aim to ensure that all children from birth up to five years have access to a high standard of play, spiritual development, education and care. Nishkam Nursery will safeguard and protect all children with whom it comes into contact, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities. 
Nishkam Nursery Ethos and Vision
As parents, the happiness and fulfilment of our children is close to our hearts. In our own ways, we strive to create families where our children can flourish. We hope for a secure, safe and supportive society, which will provide for our needs and aspirations. As parents, teachers and other adults, we all have a responsibility to create ideal communities, which are the building blocks for such a society.
Alongside material happiness and fulfilment, the world’s faith traditions point to a more important kind of happiness which comes about when we go beyond ourselves, placing the needs of others before our own. Faith-based organisations can play a positive role in helping us become better parents, teachers and citizens, and most importantly, better human beings.
Values through SACRE Dispositions
In 2007, Birmingham City Council’s Education Department and the Standing Advisory Committee on Religious Education (SACRE) worked closely with Birmingham Faith Leaders Group, an organisation representing faith communities from within the city, to identify 24 spiritual and moral dispositions. These were included in the Birmingham Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education, which transformed the traditional concept learning ‘about’ faith, into learning ‘from’ faith, and illustrated what values faith had to offer. At the Nishkam Nursery, all children are given the opportunity to explore and develop their whole-selves by using the dispositions in all areas of learning.
Safeguarding and Protecting Children
Harm to children can be perpetrated in various ways, e.g. physically, emotionally, sexually, through neglect and also domestic violence.
Nishkam Nursery aims to safeguard and protect all children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities. Practitioners at Nishkam Nursery are responsible for ensuring the safety and welfare of all children in their care. Nishkam Nursery will ensure that staff complete safeguarding training which will enable them to recognise signs of potential abuse and neglect; and we have a practitioner who is designated to take lead responsibility for safeguarding children and who should liaise with local statutory children’s services agencies as appropriate. This lead will also complete appropriate child protection training.
