Nursery and Early Years

The Nursery and Reception Classes are known as the Foundation Stage. All children within the Nursery and Reception classes will follow the government Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum which consists of 7 areas of learning and development.  These include:


the 3 prime areas:

· Communication and language

· Physical development

· Personal, social and emotional development


4 Specific areas:

· Literacy

· Mathematics

· Understanding the world
