We are committed to encouraging a love of learning in our nursery. A great experience of education at this critical age can lay the foundations for success in later life.
Owls Nursery school provides a stimulating and nurturing environment inspiring children to try their best, attempt new things and explore learning and the wider world. We want every child to thrive in this environment, working to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework. Early Years Foundation Framework curriculum sets out statutory standards that all early years providers must meet.
The EYFS aims to provide:

  • Quality and consistency in all early years settings
  • A secure foundation for all children for good progress through school and life
  • Partnerships between practitioners and parents
  • Equality of opportunity for all children

EYFS focuses on the three prime areas of learning and four secondary areas, which are critical to making sure that children have the foundations for mastering basic literacy skills as they get older.
As children progress in their learning and development, they go through stages, in their own way and in their own time. As they progress and gain new skills, knowledge and confidence, we monitor and record this, and plan their next steps.
