Our Curriculum

A large reason for our continued success as a nursery group is our unique curriculum, designed specifically to meet the needs of local communities in and around Peterborough.

It’s called Aspire, and our teams use it to prepare your child as comprehensively as possible for primary school (while also leaving plenty of time for fun along the way!). During their time with us, your child will Aspire to:

  • Learn, not only about themselves but about their environment and the community they’re a part of
  • Achieve, through early intervention and inclusion
  • Protect, looking out for and caring for others
  • Develop, our team monitoring their performance and development at every step
  • Be Ready for their next steps in life

To help them achieve these aims, your child will be appointed a dedicated ‘key’ team member. They’ll work closely together, giving your little one the best possible start to their journey in education – and preparing them for what lies ahead both in and out of school.

We welcome involvement from parents, too. Let’s all work together to help your child flourish.
