Activities are planned and resources are provided to correspond with “The Early Years Foundation Stage” (EYFS).  

The EYFS is issued by the Department for Education and sets the standards for learning, development and care for children from birth to five.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (also used by school nurseries) covers:​​​​

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Communication and Language





Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design

There are opportunities throughout the day for children of all ages to meet together and learn from each other.  This is particularly designed to create a family environment and allow siblings to have contact with each other.

Communication between children and staff is encouraged and visitors from different walks of life will be introduced to the children. 

Located in a rural setting, we aim to take advantage of the surrounding countryside by regularly taking the children on walks and actively encouraging them to understand and appreciate the environment.
