Foundation Stage

Welcome to the Foundation Stage!  We take children from the term after their 3rd birthday into our FS1 class, Red Base.  They move to FS2 in the September after their 4th birthday.  We have two FS2 classes – Blue Base and Green Base.

We aim to provide a balanced curriculum which enables each child to achieve their full potential personally, socially, physically, creatively and academically.

We provide a fun, exciting, stimulating environment in order to motivate and inspire your child.

Our curriculum is flexible, based on children’s interests and led by staff observations.  We create opportunities for purposeful play both indoors and outdoors.

Our staff are highly knowledgeable, dedicated and enthusiastic.  They are keen to get to know you and your child and are always available to answer your questions.
