We aim to provide a fully inclusive environment where each and every child can experience the full range of activities and opportunities to enhance their learning and development. Within the EYFS Framework it is our responsibility to meet individual needs of all children. We are an inclusive setting; we aim to identify a need at the earliest possible opportunity. We work in partnership with families to adapt our practice, provision and the environment in order to support all children’s learning, development and care needs.
Ladybirds - Ages 0 - 2 Years (Ratio 1:3)

Butterflies - Ages 3-5 Years (Ratio 1:8)
The Early Learning Partnership ensures that all children attending the Nursery School have a personal ‘Learning Journal’ which records photos, observations and comments in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), to build up a record of each child’s interests and achievements during their time in the EYFS.
The aim is to provide an online journal of every child’s personal development, to understand their level of achievement, interests and learning styles and then shape their learning experiences for each child reflecting those observations. To illustrate children’s development progress through the different age bands in the EYFS.
Each child will have a key person allocated to them who will be responsible for the compilation of children’s learning journals and a buddy key worker who will complete the learning journal in the key person’s absence.
Schools and Collections
Rothbury Kindergarten has close links with the local first schools and passes on any relevant information regarding your child’s learning and development, during their time with us and when they leave. We operate a drop off and collection service to Rothbury First School and a collection only service to Thropton First School. Both services are subject to numbers and availability.
