We aim to build flexible minds and an enquiring spirit through highly skilled practitioners, a well resourced environment and treating all children as unique individuals.

We understand that choosing the right care for your child is an important decision, and starting nursery can be a daunting time for children and their parents. We aim to make this as smooth a process as possible and take our responsibility to your child very seriously.

Parents’ Guide to the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework

What is the Early Years Foundation Stage?

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), is how the Government and early years professionals describe the time in your child’s life between birth and age 5.

This is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born up until the age of 5, their early years experience should be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure; and support their development, care and learning needs.
