Early Years Foundation Stage

The Early Years Foundation Stage covers Nursery and Reception. Our curriculum challenges children, encouraging them to develop into motivated learners, curious about the world around them. Our children are nurtured in a secure environment, whilst being allowed to explore, enquire and take risks both inside and outside the classroom. Our children make swift progress within a child centred context, and make a smooth transition to Key Stage 1.  Our Early Years curriculum is based on seven areas of learning. 

There are three prime areas:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Physical development
  • Communication and language

There are four specific areas:

  • Mathematics
  • Literacy
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

We believe that it is fundamental that a child feels comfortable in their learning environment. We, therefore, offer a home visit before the child starts nursery or reception in September. This allows both the child and the parent to meet the teacher in the security of their own home environment.
