Early Years

The children are at the heart of our Early Years curriculum in both our nursery and reception provision. Time is taken to understand the interests and needs of all the children and the provision on offer reflects this. Our provision is calm and purposeful, allowing the children to explore, be curious, develop independence and become confident communicators. Our staff join the children in their play and engage them in meaningful interactions to enhance their learning ‘in the moment’. We recognise the importance of observing, waiting and listening to the children to ensure that we understand exactly what they enjoy and the skills they need to develop whilst they are with us. Visit our Reception Page and our Nursery page to see what we our learning looks like so far.

Our daily timetable features short group sessions interspersed with quality time for the children to explore their environment.

Communication and Language development is key. The children have the opportunity everyday to talk and to develop new language. This is achieved through play and our carefully planned provision as well as through adult led initiatives such as Wellcomm (in our nursery), Drawing Club and NELI (Nuffield Early Language Intervention) and Read Write Inc (which starts in Reception).

We value the role that parents, carers and families play in the learning journey of our children. We use Class Dojo as a way of communicating with families, sending photos and observations of special moments and sharing our learning to encourage families to support the child’s learning at home. Families are invited to be part of their child’s learning regularly and we ensure that we are available to meet parents and carers at the beginning and the end of every day.
