Curriculum

At Purple Willows Day Nursery, we prepare your child for primary school through games and play following the Government's statutory framework for Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which sets the standards for learning, development and care for children from birth to five. Our overall aim is to provide a curriculum-rich environment to develop every area of a child's life; social, emotional, physical and academic.
