Early Years

Children learn best through play and Nursery builds on the learning the children have learnt other early years settings.


The EYFS curriculum provides:

  • quality and consistency

  • a secure foundation for all children for good progress through school and life

  • partnerships between different practitioners

  • partnerships between parents or carers and practitioners

  • equality of opportunity for all children

    What children learn

    A revised EYFS came into effect on 1 September 2014. There are seven areas of learning that must shape educational programmes in early years settings. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive. These three areas, the prime areas, are:

    • communication and language;
    • physical development; and
    • personal, social and emotional development.

    In addition there are four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied:

  • literacy

  • maths

  • understanding the world

  • expressive arts and design


  • EYFS Profile

    All early years providers must complete a profile for each child in the final term of the year in which they turn five. The main purpose is to provide an accurate assessment of individual children at the end of the EYFS. The profile describes each child’s attainment against 17 early learning goals, together with a short narrative about their learning characteristics.



    Home school books

    Please remember to work with your child each week completing their Home School Books, looking through what your child has done at school that week and then sharing some of your home experiences with us. It really helps children to build their communication skills and self-confidence. Please make sure it comes back to school on  Monday so that we have time to get it ready for the Friday.


  •  PE

Your child will be doing PE every Monday pm and Thursday am Please make sure that their PE kit is in school by this day. They will need a white T Shirt, black shorts and pumps they can fasten themselves! Remember to name everything.


  • Wellies

Please remember to send in your child’s wellies as without these they cannot fully access the outside environment. The rule is ‘No Wellies, No Bikes’.


  • Library Book

Every Friday your child will have the opportunity to choose a library book to share at home. Please ensure it is returned by the following Friday to allow a new choice to be made.


  • School day

Full Day -Please make sure that your child is at Nursery for 8:30 each morning and then collected at 3:30.

Morning Session-Please make sure that your child is at Nursery for 8:30 each morning and then collected at 11:30.

If someone different is going to collect your child at the end of the day please let your child’s Key Worker know.


  • Snack Money

This is now due and your child’s £6 snack money allows us to supply enhanced snack on a Friday as well as baking materials. Alternatively if you would like to pay £36 for the year that would be great.
