Welcome to Nursery
The Early Years Foundation Stage is the statutory curriculum for children 0-5 For us, the EYFS covers our Nursery and Reception classes. Our curriculum challenges children, encouraging them to develop into independent, motivated learners who are curious about the world around them. Our children are nurtured within a secure environment, whilst being allowed to explore, enquire and take risks both inside and outside of the classroom. Our children make rapid progress within a child centred context allowing a smooth transition into Key Stage 1.

The Early Years curriculum is based on seven areas of learning.

- Physical development
- Communication and language
The Specific Areas:
- Understanding the world
- Expressive arts and design
It is essential that the transition into school, whether that be into Nursery or Reception, is a smooth and successful one. We, therefore, offer a home visit in September, before they start school. This allows both the child and the parent to meet the teacher in the security of their own home environment.
