We are excited to share with you a new method of planning that we have introduced across all three of our nurseries: “In the Moment Planning” is child-led and real-time planning which uses a child’s interests as the main driver for planning activities.
We will continue to offer many elements of our existing core provision, including sand and water play, mark making, construction activities and many more. During the time that the children are taking part in these activities, the team will closely observe them in order to watch and listen for a sign that the children are engaged and eager to explore further.
These are referred to as “teachable moments” and the team will then use these times to create a balance of adult-led and child-led activities to expand learning. Research shows that children being offered all these experiences will make rapid progress in their development.
The link below will take you directly to a wonderful explanation of the benefits of in the moment planning:
