In the Early Years Foundation Stage the children learn best through play and first-hand experiences.
We provide experiences that enable children to develop a positive sense of achievement and a strong sense of self worth, including visiting Gray's Wood, on-site, where the children are able to discover new skills for themselves.
Our emphasis is on practical work; we provide activities that promote ‘hands on’ learning with real life situations to enable children to understand mathematical concepts fully whilst communicating their thoughts, ideas and feelings with adults and each other.
Young children’s learning is not compartmentalised. They learn when they make connections between experiences and ideas that are related to their lives and have the opportunities to have first-hand new experiences.
Children enjoy using all their skills developed during formal learning to make sense of the world around them.
