Learning is based on the English National Curriculum’s Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. This offers a core, theme-based curriculum with plenty of free-flow learning so children enjoy a variety of rich and meaningful experiences. As they explore, they’re encouraged to think creatively and be physically active. This means our children develop a positive attitude towards learning as they gain confidence, foster social skills and develop physically. This prepares children for their educational journey ahead.
