At Robert Owen we aim for all children to be happy and confident within our nursery.  By the time they leave Robert Owen, we want them to be confidentresilient and independent learners who are curious, imaginative, communicative, sociable, adventurous, persistent, problem-solvers. We believe that children learn best when they are self-motivated and interested. For young children, play is their work.  Therefore, for most of the time, the children are engaged in their own freely chosen exploration, play and planned play activities, based on observations, in our engaging and enabling inside and outside environments.  Our ambitious curriculum is responsive to the needs of all our children and prepares them for the next stage of their learning.  

In recent months, we have been capturing our curriculum in the following document: 

The Robert Owen Curriculum

We will continue to review and update this document throughout the year so please do check back.

Robert Owen follows the Early Years Statutory Framework (2021) which looks at the overall development of the children.   Please  follow the link to read the framework.
