Information & FAQs

Aims and Objectives of EYFS


Admission to nursery is often a child's first contact with school-and parents' too. Positive attitudes towards themselves, school and learning fostered in Nursery will benefit a child for the rest of their school career and beyond. We aim to nurture these attitudes as well as providing an education which is at once rigorous and fun.

We aim to:

-build on a child's previous experiences and help them to further their intellectual, personal, social and cultural development.

-prepare children for the next stages in their school career with reference to the Early Years Foundation Stage and to effect a smooth transition.

In order to meet these aims we:

-provide an environment which is caring, supportive, safe and stimulating.

-offer a broad and balanced curriculum delivered through play and informal learning situations based on first-hand experiences.

-establish positive relationships with parents and work towards an effective partnership with them in the education of their children.

-provide high quality and well-planned resources, activities and interactions which help each child progress in accordance with their potential.

-have high expectations of all children's behaviour and achievements.

-keep clear records, informed by detailed observations and assessments of children's progress and achievements. These inform our planning and teaching as well as providing information for parents and other professionals.

The Nursery offers 26 places in each session.
