Early YearsSUB MENU
Our Nursery and Reception classes create the ideal environment for children to take the first steps in their education. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework which incorporates seven key areas of learning:
- Personal, social and emotional development
- Communication and language
- Understanding of the world
- Physical development
- Expressive arts and design
Alongside learning the basics of literacy and numeracy, the children develop skills and interests through an exciting and diverse range of experiences. Most importantly, children begin their social journey, building positive relationships with their teachers and peers.
Learning through play is the basis of our teaching, with a focus on social, physical and communication skills. There is a wide range of activities each week including ball skills, gym, dance, music, French, Forest School, swimming and topic-related trips and visits. There is also time to develop social skills through play and teacher-led activities.
Every day is an adventure and a time of discovery. We carefully structure the work to help children develop their skills and relationships to enable them to reach their Early Learning Goals milestones by the end of the Reception year, with many children exceeding them.
