Our curriculum ambitions are unique to Ludwick Nursery School, they were written as part of our curriculum development inset day with the staff team and have developed throughout the year.
They reflect the unique character of our provision, the needs of our children and are underpinned by Froebelian principles which help shape our pedagogy.
We have written the core skills that children will develop and learn over time. We acknowledge that learning is holistic, so different areas naturally overlap and flow into one another.
