Early Years 

Children in Nursery and Reception follow the Early Years curriculum. 

Our Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is based on seven areas of learning: 

  • Communication and Language 
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development 
  • Physical Development 
  • Maths
  • Literacy
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design 


In the Early Years the focus is on learning through purposeful play. Lots of opportunities will be provided to make use of the outdoor learning area. The child-led learning opportunities challenge the children to become independent, curious and motivated learners within a secure, happy and safe environment.
