The Old Station Nursery Group launched the Brighter Learning Approach across all settings this year.
This has been introduced to enrich children’s learning and development within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework, the approach fosters curiosity, creativity, and holistic well-being.
The commitment to going beyond academic achievement with the Brighter Learning Approach distinguishes The Old Station Nursery Group and solidifies them as a leading nursery group. The group believe that learning should be a journey, inspiring children to explore, experiment, and express themselves. The settings within the group aim to enhance collaboration and communication, nurturing partnerships between parents, caregivers, and educators. Moreover, the approach instils core values such as empathy, respect, and environmental consciousness, equipping children to become responsible and compassionate global citizens.
At The Old Station Nursery Group, the teams take pride in on not just providing quality childcare, but advocation for brighter futures by pioneering innovative practices that sculpt young minds, setting a new standard in early childhood education.
The Brighter Learning Approach is divided into 6 key enrichments: Confident Speakers and Communicators which helps to develop confident communicators by engaging in quality conversations within a language rich and communication friendly environment; Mini Maths that engages the children in meaningful mathematical learning; Raving Readers that entices and excites children to develop a life-long love of books and reading; Super STEAM which enables early experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics; Wonderful World where children learn to understand the world they live in and how they can make a difference, and My Happy and Healthy Self that promotes children’s holistic health and laying the foundations for a happy, healthy and successful life.
Commenting on the success of the recent Brighter Learning Approach, Emma Pittam, Head of Quality and Training at The Old Station Nursery Group says:
“We truly believe this that this approach to learning is hugely beneficial for the children in our nurseries and has a meaningful impact on learning and development. The approach aims to embed a fundamental love of learning and offer all the support and encouragement to help children achieve their potential. The Old Station Nursery Group’s commitment to the Brighter Learning Approach signifies our dedication to providing an exceptional educational experience that transcends traditional norms. We understand that education goes beyond the typical subjects, and with this approach, we foster a curiosity-driven environment where children are encouraged to explore, experiment, and express themselves freely. It’s about nurturing holistic development, not just academically but emotionally, socially, and physically.”
As part of their continuous commitment to innovative early childhood education, The Old Station Nursery Group is thrilled to introduce Brighter Learning Clubs, launching before the end of 2023.
These clubs will provide unique and enriching experiences that complement the Brighter Learning Approach: Budding Scientists encouraging children to explore Science through hands-on experiments, whilst embarking on an exciting journey to discover the wonders of the natural world; Budding Chefs that inspires children to discover the joys of cooking and baking while promoting a holistic approach to healthy eating and lifestyle choices; Budding Movers that promotes physical activity for health and fun, motivating children to embrace the joy of movement through engaging games and activities; Budding Gardeners which fosters a love for gardening and sustainable practices, nurturing plants, growing food, and instilling an appreciation for nature and eco-conscious values; Budding Musicians encouraging the use of music to encourage self-expression, cultivating children’s communication and learning skills, and Budding Artists that promotes confidence through artistic experiences, offering children the opportunity to express themselves through colours and imagination, fostering self-assured creativity.
