Usk Nursery is committed to ensuring that children have access to a range of activities and resources that promote the play agenda.
“Play is a process that is freely chosen, personally directed and intrinsically motivated. That is, children and young people determine and control the content and intent of their play, by following their own instincts, ideas and interests, in their own way for their own reasons.” Playwork Principles.
In accepting the above principle, we recognise that play is a vital component of a child’s life. To this end, we are committed to ensuring that all children have access to freely chosen, varied, and child centred play opportunities in accordance with The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 31
“Parties recognise the rights of the child to rest and to leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child”
In order to achieve this, we aim to provide a variety of activities and resources for the children, allowing them to explore and develop in their own way.
These include, but are not limited to:
- Sports and Games equipment
- Arts and Crafts resources
- Role Play activities and resources
- Celebrations of Religious Festival and other cultural events
- Story telling
- Food activities
- Occasional trips to various venues
