Early Years Foundation Stage
The provision in Nursery and Reception is outstanding both inside and outside the classroom. Adults know children extremely well and plan activities closely matched to their interests and abilities. This ensures that all children make very fast progress across all areas of learning.
Our carefully planned curriculum is tailored to the needs of the individual child allowing them to progress successfully through the Early Years Foundation Stage and foster a love of learning. Through skilful observation and assessment, activities and opportunities are planned to encourage the children to gain lifelong learning skills with the minimum of pressure and lots of fun.
A balance of child initiated and adult led activities encourages the children to discover a wide range of subjects through play and exploration and prepares them to progress confidently onto the next stage of their learning. At St Margaret's Lee we recognise the importance of working with parents in all aspects of the care and education of their child. We welcome their input and knowledge and are happy to discuss any aspect of their child's development.
The aim of the nursery is to plan a curriculum using the EYFS to provide the children with learning experiences of the highest quality, considering both children’s needs and achievements and the range of learning experiences that will help them to make progress towards (and, where appropriate, beyond) these goals.
The 7 areas of the Early Years foundation Stage are as follows:
Personal Social and emotional Development
- Communication and Language
Specific areas of learning
Understanding the world
