FOUNDATION STAGE


This is the last year of the children’s Early Year programme. Our children work within a ‘unit’ where we provide a ‘continuous provision’ model of teaching.

The children follow the Early Years profile of national expectations and are assessed continuously to ensure progress and development.

The process of teacher directed and child initiated learning are influenced by the needs of the child. Our ideology is drawn from e.g. Reggio, Emilio, Montessori and we have staff qualified in both these Early Years processes of learning.

Our approach to entry into the school (soft start) is appreciated and supported by our parents.
