Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception)
Foundation Stage (nursery and reception) Children in Nursery and Reception follow an ’Early Years’ curriculum.
As part of our promotion of engagement we plan around children’s interests.
This curriculum is carefully structured, and follows the guidance laid out by the DFE. It is broadly based and balanced, encouraging learning in all the basic elements of:
- Personal, social and emotional development
- Communication, language and literacy
- Mathematical development
- Knowledge and understanding of the world
- Physical development
- Creative development
Children’s learning and development is carefully assessed throughout the Foundation Years. A base-line assessment takes place prior to the children entering the Reception class, and this will be discussed with you at the time. Please remember that we are always willing to discuss any aspects of your child’s development with you, you only need to ask.
