All pre-school and nursery settings are required to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

We meet the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework while providing a high quality learning environment which takes account of the needs, interests and stages of development of the individual children in our care.

The Early Years Foundation Stage is designed to support children in developing the 3 prime areas of

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

before they go on to develop the specific areas of

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

We plan and offer a wide range of purposeful, play-based activities based on our children’s interests to support their learning through independent exploration and interaction with adults and other children.
