Educating and Caring for Children
At Nishkam Nursery, we aim to provide a high standard of education and care, enabling children to learn and develop in a happy, caring and homely environment through play, build humility and confidence in children, build parent/carer relationships with practitioners, create equality within the setting for all and spiritual development with respect for all faiths. Children play and learn in a values led environment.
We work in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage requirements.

The nursery caters for all children:
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:
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.
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.
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.
