Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage.
In the early years, we aim to foster a love of learning. We believe in nurturing independence, curiosity, self-belief and an excitement to learn.
Together, our EYFS teacher rigorously plan for learning across our nursery and reception classes to ensure that children have a smooth and systematic learning journey that builds on prior knowledge and experiences. We aim to establish deeply rooted foundations in learning so that all children are well prepared to continue their learning into Year 1 in the September after their 5th birthday.
Teaching and learning in the EYFS is heavily play based. Children have access to a rich indoor and outdoor learning environment. Carefully planning teaching inputs are delivered daily, alongside plentiful opportunities for child initiated tasks and adult led learning. We believe that learning opportunities should be fun and engaging for children, as this makes their learning memorable.
If you have any issues, would like to get in contact or want to share some of your child's learning, please email us on NCPAducklings@watertonacademytrust.org
