Child Development

Our Human Values Development (HVD) programme establish the building stones of character, self-discipline and values so they develop compassion for their peers and others in the community and to develop respectful, healthy social interactions.

HVD© programme is based on the foundations of the Universal Human Values of Love, Truth, Right-Conduct, Peace and Non-Violence. Through HVD© children learn to trust, share, give, have courage and more, all of which lay the foundation of successful future life.


A child’s first two years of life are critical in the development of language and brain function. This time also plays a fundamental role in the progression of the brain, as intellect and emotions begin to form. From the moment a baby is born, it is overwhelmed with sights, sounds, smells and feels to investigate and solve. With such strong sensory-motors, they explore the world with these senses, even down to foundational notions such as what is up and what is down in their new physical world. At 21st Century Kidz Nursery we have a huge selection of baby sensory toys and sensory areas for them to investigate to ensure these senses are developed.

By the time a child reaches 3 years old, they experience a huge transitional change. During their time with us in day nursery, we encourage them to explore their powers of communication, move around more independently, assert their independence and their own individuality. At this age it is vital that we ensure they are learning full control of their bodily functions before they progress into our preschool in Blackburn. At our Blackburn nursery we believe that childcare should provide manageable challenges for each child to overcome daily, both for their education as well as their sense of self achievement and confidence.


Preschool is a hugely important time in a child’s development, as they quickly progress from a toddler through to a small child, becoming more and more independent every day. At our preschool in Blackburn we encourage each child to be curious about the world around them as we introduce more structured and purposeful learning to prepare them for school the following year. With staff qualified in the progression of early years children, we ensure that we provide challenges that force each child to think for themselves, solve problems, communicate effectively, work well with others, and understand the world around them.


The teachings that lay at the core of everything we do at 21st Century Kidz Nursery are:

  • To approach the world with curiosity.
  • To provide the necessary foundation skills to be successful in maths and science through an interest in properties and forces in our natural world.
  • To use social skills to form strong relationships, such as patience, listening, and the ability to work well with others.
  • To be ready to read and confident in an expanding their vocabulary.


Using interactive learning technology, the SMART Table encourages children to work together and discuss while participating in digital lessons, interactive learning activities and educational games. Suitable for children of all ages, students can participate in groups of up to eight people, simultaneously manipulating objects on the surface of the table to solve problems and reach answers collaboratively. Using carefully designed lessons, the SMART Table helps children to apply age-appropriate skills such as counting and reading, as well as social skills and teamwork.
