Foundation Stage



 Welcome to Early Years Foundation Stage



Learning at home


Learning in Reception


Trips and Events


Within a safe and secure environment, our Early Years aims to nurture happy children, giving them the confidence to explore and experiment.

Our children initiate their own learning through play in our stimulating indoor and outdoor facilities, becoming creative thinkers with opportunities to discover and make sense of our fascinating world.

Early Years (ages 2-5) Please click here to see the nursery/toddler page for 2-4 year old information.

Our Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum has been carefully developed to offer our youngest children a stimulating introduction to learning, in a fun and safe environment that includes plenty of indoor and outdoor play. A close interaction with the rest of the school ensures that when the children are ready to move up to Key Stage 1, they are familiar with the environment, prepared and confident. Play is an essential part of learning in the Early Years, and activities are planned to encourage the children’s natural curiosity, sense of fun and educational development whilst following their interests.
