What we provide



Within the group, all children are supported in developing their potential at their own pace. We work in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). This is a framework for all children from 0-5 years of age.  We follow the guidelines and personalise learning for every child, picking up on their interests, previous experiences and abilities, to support them to develop and move onto the next stage.

A copy of the EYFS pack is available for parents to view.

The three prime areas are:

Communication and language

A range of equipment and opportunities, both indoors and outdoors, allows children to develop confidence and enjoyment in the use and development of their physical skills.
