Welcome to Early Years!


Here is our fabulous Early Years Team.

Mrs Kingswell, Miss Musa, Miss Foley, Mrs Bobat, Miss Lakhi and Mrs Shaheen

In Nursery and Reception, children embark on a journey of discovery and exploration. We create a happy and caring environment where all children feel valued and safe and where they will have the opportunity to develop positive relationships with all the adults and children within our setting. 

Our environments follow a holistic approach and allow children to access classrooms, shared areas and the outdoor classroom/ garden areas. Within each area of learning, children are exposed to curriculum based skills through play. Each area has a planned provocation or challenge, adult enhanced provision and materials to extend their learning, all running alongside our continuous provision.

As we teach children independence and structure our timetable will adapt across the year. Carpet input sessions will get longer and group sizes will get bigger. This is all to help prepare children for a smooth transition into Year One.

There are seven areas of learning and development in EYFS that the children will learn whilst they are with us.

The three prime areas are crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning:

  • Communication and Languge
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • PhysicalDevelopment

The three prime areas are strengthened and applied through the four specific areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understandthe World
  • Expressive Art and Design

BBC Number Blocks is a fantastic resource, aimed at introducing children to early number. Snappy animation and lovable characters combine with engaging storylines to gently introduce concepts of number to support early mathematical understanding.
