We support all children in developing a love of learning through hands on experiences, and with the provision of a rich learning environment and resources. We aim to support the children in all areas of their learning, and provide a happy, safe, stimulating environment for the children to learn and thrive. Our children are very happy, confident and independent learners, always curious and keen to explore their indoor and outdoor environment.
Our children are busy, active learners! We offer a well resourced Early Years environment with indoor and outdoor spaces in a beautiful rural setting. We provide an enabling indoor and outdoor learning environment to ensure that the children develop as active, inquisitive learners. The children enjoy a balance of high quality play in the provision provided, supported by interactions from their teachers to facilitate their learning. We have a particular love for outdoor learning and encourage curiosity, discovery and exploring through independent learning. We acknowledge that play is a vehicle for learning, enabling children to become creative and critical thinkers with the ability to explore, investigate and be curious. This is balanced with more structured learning opportunities by adults to teach the essential skills and knowledge the children need, for example in maths, reading and phonics.
We follow the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage which specifies the areas of learning and development (the educational programmes) for children in the early years. We aim to support all our children in achieving the Early Learning Goals during their time with us – These are the knowledge, skills and understanding children should have at the end of the Reception year.
If you would like to find out more or have any questions, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
We welcome you to come in and have a look around school. This can be organised with Mrs Grayson.
