How do children learn in the Early Years?

Over the academic year we will be covering the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum

– it is a distinct phase of education covering birth to the end of the Reception year.

Please follow the link below to find out more:


Children in our Early Years setting learn through a balance of adult-led and child-initiated experiences.

We know that young children learn best when they explore and experience things first-hand, and our team are all extremely experienced in supporting children to make the most of any learning opportunities that may arise.

Please be assured we will always put your child’s emotional and physical well-being at the heart of all we do!

Home Learning Support

From Monday 23rd March 2020 Laura will update both the Sunflower class web-page & Tapestry weekly,

so that Sunflower parents/carers have access to ideas and resources to support with home learning.

Additional to this she will also provide another home learning stimulus every weekday on Tapestry to inspire Sunflowers.

This will continue for the duration of the school closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
