Our Curriculum Intent Overview

Our intent is to provide a rich and engaging early years curriculum that is personalised to the needs and interests of our children. Rooted in the pedagogy of play and first-hand experiences and influenced by Froebelian principles; our curriculum is delivered through adult and child-initiated learning experiences, with a focus on developing communication and language skills; positive relationships; key learning dispositions and embedding core knowledge and skills that lay firm foundations for future learning. Our curriculum, takes into account, the varying needs and abilities of individual children and is tailored to the child’s developmental needs.

Our school vision of ‘Together we are building a better tomorrow’ acknowledges the significance of the school and families working in partnership, and the importance of all children experiencing a high-quality nursery education and the positive impact that this has on later life.

The school’s values of respect, trust, courage and kindness are at the core of our pedagogy and practice.

We have developed the following ambitions, which are unique to Ludwick:

  • Communication
  • Community
  • Creativity
  • Challenge
