Burton Hathow Early Years believe that learning should be child initiated and that children should be given the opportunity to fulfil their potential in a safe and nurturing environment.

Our roots and ethos are embedded in our Early Years Curriculum, in which children engage in experiences that support their age and stage of development. We believe that children should feel secure and valued which, in turn, allows them to learn and explore. We provide children with opportunities that develop their imagination, awe, and wonder and encourage them to take part in activities that develop their risk-taking and problem-solving.

Offering care and education from the age of 2 years old, nurturing individual needs is a focus in our setting. Making children feel at home is vital and encouraging them to develop socially, obtain life skills, and be happy is a priority.

Burton Hathow is a truly independent nursery and is exempt from the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) learning and development requirements. Burton Hathow has developed its own enriched independent curriculum and assessment framework that feeds into the whole school’s learning approach.
