Early Years Foundation stage

Our enabling environment along with skilful adult interactions supports the children as they learn about the world around them through purposeful play and exploration. Quality continuous provision is enhanced as a result careful planning which responds to the needs of the children as they progress through the early years; our children are constantly challenged and opportunities to stretch their learning maximised.  Our environment nurtures the whole child and recognises the uniqueness of each individual; their interests are followed and their curiosity nurtured. The resources in our environment are beautiful presented, creating a sense of awe and wonder whilst ensuring the children are able to practise and embed their newly found skills in reading, writing and maths as they grow in independence and confidence. Our staff know each of our children as learners; they recognise their strengths and nurture their needs through carefully planned direct teaching opportunities where the children’s next steps are addressed and progress towards all areas of the Early Learning Goals are carefully tracked to ensure they reach their true potential.
