Foundation One (Nursery)

Children start Foundation 1 the term after their third birthday. 

 

They will be offered five sessions per week, either morning or afternoon.

 

We ask for children to be dropped off or collected on time and for parents/carers to call to let us know if your child is unable to attend the session.

Children will be in a group with a keyworker who will support them on their learning journey.
 
However, please feel free to speak to any member of staff about your child we are always happy to help!

Our Curriculum

 

From 1 September 2021, all early years providers must follow the new early years foundation stage (EYFS) framework. This sets the standards to make sure that children aged from birth to 5 learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. 

You can click the link below to find out more about the EYFS.

In the Moment Planning:

Here is some information for Parents/Carers about how we will be observing, assessing and planning for focus children each week in Foundation 1.
Our Themes
 
Over the year we aim to explore different themes with the children to help them learn about themselves and the world around them. Our themes are:
 
Being Me in My World
Celebrating Difference
Dreams and Goals
Healthy Me
Relationships
Changing Me
