 We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and we encourage the individual child to learn through play. Our extensive grounds enable continuous use of the outdoor area where we have a spacious lawn, a giant sandpit, a bark area,an outdoor classroom and a vegetable garden for the children to explore enjoy.

The Lower Nursery children are introduced to pre-writing skills and ICT. They learn through practical activities such as number rhymes, counting games, cookery, gardening, music and movement. Which take place both inside and out.

The Pre school children are introduced to Letters and Sounds (Phase one), with an empahsis on learning through practical play. We offer numerous opportunities for the children to make use of their natural environment.
