Building character begins

in infancy and is a sure foundation for future success



As an Early Years provider, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, which has the following learning and development requirements to ensure children are ready for school:

  • Communication and language

  • Physical development 

  • Personal, social and emotional development 


These three prime areas of learning and development are strengthened and applied through:

  • Literacy

  • Mathematics

  • Understanding the world

  • Expressive arts and design

Within this framework, we provide a rich learning environment with a combination of teacher-led and child-initiated activities, and there is a high emphasis on learning through play. Children are observed and regularly assessed on the progress they are making so that progressive learning steps can be set. 


We also participate in The Bristol Standard, a nationally recognised self-evaluation framework. This enables us to identify and celebrate our strengths as well as determine our future priorities.
