  Mrs Marsh is our EYFS Lead 

Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS)


In the Foundation Stage we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS). We support the children to become independent and collaborative learners. We provide a range of activities and experiences that encourage children to take risks, explore and make links between their explorations.


The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) applies to children from birth to the end of the Reception year. 


There are seven areas of learning and development which shape educational programmes in early years settings. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected. The three prime area of learning are crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive. We pride ourselves in offering a bespoke curriculum, giving the children lots of quality learning opportunities tailored around their individual needs and interests.  Outdoor learning plays a big part in our curriculum and we have amazing grounds for the children to explore.
