The Orchard Trees Approach



 At Orchard Trees we understand how important it is for children to be confident learners and that they need freedom to explore their environment in order for these skills to develop.

By taking inspiration from the Reggio Emilia approach our practitioners have developed a child-centred pedagogy which allows every child to explore their own interests with their Key person learning right alongside them.

The Environment as the 3rd Teacher

Our practitioners ensure that the environment is beautifully presented and rich in interesting and open-ended resources which reflect the interests of the children.

In the Moment Planning

We believe that children learn best when they can follow their own interests and lead their own individual journeys. Therefore, we have developed a way of planning ‘In the Moment’ whist still being able to accurately track the development of each child using the Early years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
