A Focus on Child Development


We understand how a child’s development is important for all those who work in early years. Practitioners here have developed an understanding of the implications of children’s developmental processes in order to meet individual needs. The key to this understanding is the development of skills in observing children and interpreting those observations.

A holistic approach to child development seeks to simultaneously address the physical, emotional, relational, intellectual, and spiritual aspects of a child’s life. The importance of the Holistic Approach is that the Child learns different things at different stages including walking, talking and fine motor skills. Holistic development is the overall development of all areas of development in children.

Child-centred Approach

Our child centred approach promotes the development of individuality, creativity and self-confidence through working in partnership with parents to provide the highest level and standards of nursery care allowing us to help the children with their transitions from nursery to school. At Acola Kids we ensure that the framework for the EYFS is met through our daily activities whilst having lots of fun and gaining skills. We provide a home like nursery making sure the children are comfortable, relaxed and have plenty of cuddles on hand for when they need them.
