Welcome to Early years. Early years is divided into 2 year groups. We have Nursery and Reception.
Within Early years, children access their learning through play and adult interactions. We also ensure the children have structured activities to support their learning and to prepare them for school life.
Early Years Practitioners follow a non-statutory guidance called Early Years Development Matters.

The children are assessed, observed and supported to develop their characteristics of learning and the 7 main areas of learning.
You will find all seven areas on the trees. There are many ideas and activities to help support your child at home.
