Development can only take place when children are actively involved, when they are occupied with a high, non-stop degree of concentration, when they are interested, when they give themselves completely, when they use all their mental abilities to invent and make new things and when this gives them a high degree of satisfaction and pleasure.

In Nursery and Reception, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and deliver well planned daily activities alongside child-initiated play, which supports the seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage, which are:

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