The Foundation Stage consists of Foundation Stage 1 (Nursery) and Foundation Stage 2 (Reception).
We believe the foundation stage makes a crucial contribution to a child’s early development and learning. Practitioners aim to ensure all children get the right start. We understand all children are unique and develop and learn in different ways. We support children to be resilient, capable, confident and inquisitive as they play and explore, become active learners and develop creative and critical thinking.
We provide a rich variety of teaching and learning experiences that are appropriate to the needs of the child.
