By understanding the importance of observing children as they play and learn, staff at Norton are able to ensure there is an appropriate level of challenge and support. This enables children to build on prior learning, revisit and extend learning experiences in order to make progress.
We value the importance of having a balance between adult led learning activities and child initiated free play. During adult led activities we promote the use of practical and visual resources and learning experiences to engage the children. During free play children are encouraged to be independent, motivated and confident learners.
