Year Groups

Early Years

In the early years we focus on 3 key areas – the environment, the adult and the child. In our setting we have developed a play-based learning curriculum which is led by the child and assisted by highly trained and experienced adults -providing our 2-5 year olds with space, time, and an intentionally-curated environment in which to learn and grow. Children are encouraged to move freely about the space while collaborating with peers or engaging in parallel work. Children have a choice to play in areas including; a loose parts centre, block area, home life corner, reading nook, sand and water play and much more to explore, connect and create. Our ateliers offer children the opportunity to work with light/shadows, sensory materials, and a variety of artistic media for process art.

Year 1

Students experience a smooth transition from the Early Years Foundation Stage to Year 1. Our curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that they have had in Reception. Play will continue to be an important part of the provision and students will transition into more formal learning as the year goes on so that they remain motivated, enthused, and eager learners.
