Our nature-based curriculum is structured to reflect the learning stages that children reach as they develop. Our educational goals aim to provide a well-balanced programme through hands on participation, to encourage resilience, guide investigation and motivate a life-long love of learning. There is emphasis given to the child’s individual development which is non-competitive and unpressurised in an academic sense.
Teaching and learning opportunities are delivered at The Farmyard through story-telling, puppetry, creative play, singing, musical movement, finger plays, painting, drawing, sculpture, drama and handwork. The children also enjoy doing beeswax modelling, going for daily nature walks, gardening using a bio-dynamic approach to blend in with natural cycles, and coming together at Circle Times to celebrate Seasonal Festivals.
