Early Years & Foundation Stage (EYFS) - Nursery & Reception

Early Years Foundation Stage caters for children up to 5 years of age and is divided into Nursery (age 3-4) and Reception (age 4-5) classes.

In the Foundation Stage, we aim to create a place where children can explore, meet new friends, be safe and adventurous. We value each child as a unique individual and provide a balance of child initiated and adult led activities.

Research shows that young children learn best through play, with skilled adults to talk to, think with and learn from. We offer a rich and varied curriculum covering the 17 areas of learning which underpins:

Playing and exploring - engagement

  • Finding out and exploring
  • Playing with what they know
  • Being willing to 'have a go'

Active learning - motivation

  • Being involved and concentrating
  • Keeping trying
  • Enjoying what they set out to do

Creating and thinking critically - thinking

  • Having their own ideas
  • Making links
  • Choosing ways to do things
