Turlin Moor Nursery

Baby Room 


The curriculum we follow in the nursery is the Early Years Foundation Stage, which is based on developing and learning through play. 


The curriculum has seven areas of the learning. The first three are known as the Prime areas and these are the areas that children develop in first. 


  • Personal, social and emotional development 

  • communication and language  

  • Physical development        


The remaining four areas of learning are known as the specific areas of learning:


  • Literacy 

  • Mathematics 

  • Understanding the world 

  • Expressive arts and design


When children play they can choose how to develop their abilities and explore their creativity, putting unusual things together, learning about themselves, other people and the world around them. 


Play also allows children to build their language skills and learn vital social and emotional skills such as sharing, taking turns and listening to other people's ideas.

A Supportive Environment

Children learn through playing and exploring, being active and through creative and critical thinking. At Muddy Boots Nursery School we ensure children are able to do this both indoors and outdoors in our stimulating environment. 


Muddy Boots offers an enabling environment through:


  • Home from home environment - the environment is a happy, friendly place where children feel at home, where they know where everything is and they don't always have to rely on adults. 


  • Free flow play - children make free choices of what they would like to do next, they can choose whether they play indoors or outdoors, with the messy play, in the role play or in the quiet area. Free flow is recognised as an important part of early years development, and with our access to a large garden area children will easily be able to direct their play and make choices.  

  • Outdoor learning - qualified practitioners plan to enable learning outside the classroom through forest school inspired programmes, to aid the children's development. Outdoor learning allows the children freedom to explore the ever changing environment, whilst being independent, making choices and learning new skills.


  • Promoting independence  - Practitioners consistent approach to promoting independence allows children to develop into independent learners. Resources are kept at child height and children are encouraged to select the resources they would like to use.


  • Carefully planned layout  - the layout of the environment encourages exploration, communication and the development of relationships.
