Our Mission & Curriculum

"Nurturing confident, caring and curious children is our passion and our promise"

Our Mission


EDG stands for Educate.Develop.Grow.
Our mission is for all of our children to have a great start in life.
We encourage our children to Educate themselves, with the support and stimulation from the adults around them.

At EDG we want to ensure that we provide the highest quality childcare that is both accessible and affordable. EDG Nursery will differentiate itself by a passionate attention to detail in everything we do underpinned by our method of teaching. We are inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach derived from Northern Italy and world renowned for its progressive philosophy for building an education system fit for children.

It is the objective of EDG Nursery to provide care to all children to a standard of excellence which embraces fundamental principles of Good Child Care Practice, and that this may be witnessed and evaluated through reflective practice, conduct and control of quality care and learning within the Nursery settings.

Our Curriculum


At EDG Nursery we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum to track and support children's development. The EYFS is made up of seven areas of learning,
Three prime areas:

  • Personal, Social & Emotional Development (PSED)
  • Communication & Language (CL)
  • Physical Development (PD)

Four specific areas:

  • Literacy (L)
  • Mathematics (M)
  • Understanding The World (UTW)
  • Expressive Arts & Design (EAD)

We are inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach and combine it with the EYFS to promote and encourage children's learning through play.

We strive to provide each child with fulfilling activities that children can learn and explore with. To support their development of their personal and social skills we provide a natural and stimulating environment both inside and outside to allow children the time to explore the world around them at their own pace.
