The early years foundation stage

The Foundation Stage covers our Nursery (Foundation Stage 1 - Caterpillars and Butterflies) and Reception Class (Foundation Stage 2). The curriculum is organised into six areas of learning:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

  • Communication, Language and Literacy

  • Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy

  • Knowledge and Understanding of the World

  • Physical Development

  • Creative Development

Progress in each of these areas is measured against the early learning goals. It is recorded in the Foundation Stage Profile and used to inform parents. We share the learning journey of our children using "Tapestry" which is an online journal recording all the learning and fun of children's early years education.
