Delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage

Delivering Funded and non Funded spaces

Our promise

To provide a safe and secure learning environment to ALL children.

Our Curriculum 

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is based on discovering and learning through play. Our preschool offers a mixed variety of free flow activities on a daily basis for children to access freely and explore independently with support and guidance from qualified professionals. 

Everyday support for children with SEND

We have a dedicated Special Educational Needs Coordinator present during every session and we pursue close relationships with outside agencies such as speech therapists and Early intervention. 

Our activites

Each day children within our preschool have access to a large hall space, a crèche area and a soft surface outside area with garden and mud kitchen. We have a painting station, water and sand area, home corner, creative area and a heuristic are. All of our areas provide children with the opportunity to explore, be active and think critically. 

The Early Years Foundation Stage

The EYFS is split into separate areas of learning.
The three prime areas:  Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development and Communication and Language.
The Specific areas: Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the world and Expressive arts and design. 
Our preschool follows guidance from Development matters, which supports our practitioners in implementing the statutory requirements of the EYFS. More information around the EYFS can be found within preschool, or by visiting https://foundationyears.org.uk
