This includes our Preschool Class (Little Saplings, ages 2-3), our Nursery class (Lime, ages 3-4) and two Reception classes (Beech and Chestnut, ages 4-5). The foundation stage is for children from 0 – 5 years old and has its own curriculum.
Our Foundation Stage has 3 teachers and a number of teaching assistants and playleaders and where necessary, learning support assistants for individual children.
Planning is thematic and differentiated to suit the needs of the children in the different classes. To suit the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, learning is undertaken both indoors and out and is based on learning through play.
