Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which includes Ladybird (Nursery) Class and Mole (Reception) Class.

Our Early Years Vision:

We aim to enable all children to reach their full potential, embrace Christian values and prepare themselves to be learners for life.

In Early Years Foundation Stage this means we put children at the centre of all that we do by:

Providing a challenging, creative and inspiring Curriculum which sparks a love for learning

Ensuring everyone feels Happy, safe and secure

Teaching Independence

Valuing indoor and outdoor Learning equally

Developing social skills and risk taking

Building positive Relationships between staff, key workers, children and families

Focusing on child-centred, Enquiry based learning which promotes awe and wonder

Nurturing self -confidence and celebrating successes

The Early Years Foundation Stage consists of seven 7 areas of learning and development.

Each area of learning and development will be implemented through planned, purposeful play and through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activity. Play is essential for children’s development, building their confidence as they learn to explore, to think about problems, and relate to others.

In planning and guiding children’s activities, Foundation Stage staff will reflect on the different ways that children learn.  Three characteristics of effective learning are:

  • playing and exploring – children investigate and experience things, and ‘have a go’;
  • active learning – children concentrate and keep on trying if they encounter difficulties, and enjoy achievements; and
  • creating and thinking critically – children have and develop their own.
