EYFS

Every child deserves the best possible start in life, in the Early Years we aim to give this by observing what the children can do and supporting them to fulfil their potential.  Children become independent learners through the provision of a balance of child initiated and adult led experiences.   

 

Through play, our children explore and develop learning experiences, which help them make sense of the world.  They practise and build up ideas, and learn how to control themselves and understand the need for rules.  They have the opportunity to think creatively alongside other children as well as on their own.  They communicate with others as they investigate and solve problems.   

 

We aim to provide a practical, hands on, play based curriculum that engages all children through a variety of carefully planned activities.  Our strong Foundation Stage team works together, with all team members attending regular meetings to discuss planning and to make decisions about policy and good practice.  

 

We believe that in order for children to learn they must feel safe, secure and happy within our setting, therefore our first priority must be to ensure children’s personal, social and emotional development needs are met.  We work to develop strong links with parents and carers and to help them support their child’s learning.
