Fennies Inspire brings together our curriculum and pedological approach with our Fennies Inspire enhancements. We have a team of specialist educators who lead these sessions to enrich the experiences we create for children embedding both the EYFS Statutory Framework and supported by the Birth to 5 Matters Guidance.
It goes without saying how beneficial it is to have this incredible team working alongside, upskilling and inspiring our children and Early Years Educators.
Our Inspire enhancements are carefully designed not only to promote language skills but also to foster creativity and instil key life skills, including problem-solving and emotional intelligence.
These experiences are key to closing achievement gaps and ensuring that all children have an equal chance to succeed in school and later life.

The Fennies Ethos centres around three core pillars; your child’s development and education, our collaboration with parents, and our collective staff team of internal experts, our key to providing ‘the right start for under 5’s’ for all children.
We welcome children to our Kidbrooke day nursery from the ages of 3 months to 5 years old and our unique curriculum offers an enhanced delivery of the EYFS framework. This includes a specifically designed STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) program, focused art sessions inspired by famous Artists, and lessons delivered by our internal PE and Linguistics Coaches to inspire and support your child.
We believe it is important to develop an environmental awareness from an early age which is why we are involved in Eco-Schools awards and the Farmer Time scheme. This educates our pre school children in ways they can look after the planet and develop an appreciation for the world around them.
The experiences children have at our Kidbrooke day nursery lead up to a bespoke school readiness program, designed by the Fennies education team and consist of the Manager working closely with your child and family when transitioning to school.
We recognise the importance of the well-being of children’s minds at all ages and encourage them to become confident little communicators when it comes to managing their emotions. Mindful activities, designed to calm and self regulate, are incorporated into children’s daily routines. Alongside this, all our Room Leaders are trained in teaching pre school yoga to encourage physical play and enhance emotional development.
Nutrition plays a huge role in children’s focus, creativity, and mindset. Our nurseries are accredited with the EYNP (Early Years Nutrition Partnership) and our menus are designed alongside a registered nutritionist. Meals are then cooked on-site by our Chefs using all the fresh, balanced ingredients your child needs to learn and be happy.
Nutrition goes beyond our menus and we actively involve children in growing their own fruits and vegetables as well as teaching your child positive mealtime routines to lay the groundwork for future healthy habits.
