Welcome to EYFS

In our EYFS, we have a mixed cohort of F1 and F2 children.

Our learning environment allows all our children to explore and learn safely and securely. Although the children start and end the day in their own base, they are encouraged to be independent and explore all of the learning areas within a large unit. The children also enjoy access to a spacious, enclosed outdoor area where they have the opportunity to explore, use their senses and take part in a range of physical activities.

The role of our foundation team is to work closely together to foster children’s learning through a balance of adult-led and child-initiated activities. All members of staff take time to observe the children to establish where the children are in their learning and move them forward through effective questioning and modelling play alongside the children. Individual progress is reflected in their online Tapestry Journeys, to which parents are welcome to contribute.
