Welcome to Nursery.

We are part of the Foundation Stage. Our teachers are Mrs Carson and Mrs Darragh. Our teaching assistant are Mrs Kelly, Mrs Salmon, Mrs Pereria.

In our Nursery we love learning new things! We love to get busy in the different areas of learning. We are happy in our Nursery and we are all good friends!

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

The EYFS is based on 4 overarching principles which shape good practice in early years settings:

  • A unique child
    Every child is a unique.  They are consistently learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
  • Positive relationships
    Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
  • Enabling environments
    Children learn and develop well in environments where their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and yourself as a parent and/or carer.
  • Children learn and develop in different ways and at different rates
    The framework covers the education and care of your child within the early years setting, including children with additional needs.


The activities and experiences that we provide for your child will underpin the skills they need to work towards the Early Learning Goals in the following 7 areas:

Prime Areas:
• Communication and language
• Physical Development
• Personal, social and emotional development

Specific Areas:
• Literacy
• Mathematics
• Understanding the World
• Expressive Art and Design

What to expect, when?

The purpose of this booklet is to help you as a parent/carer find out more about how your child is learning and developing during their first five years, in relation to the EYFS.

The document includes information about your child’s next steps and ideas of how you can support them in each area of learning.



Please do not hesitate to chat to us if you have any questions.


Thank you for visitng our class page.
