Throughout the day foundation stage unit children learn through play inside, in our specifically designed outdoor area and our spacious playground.  

Mathematics and phonics sessions are carried out daily providing more focused learning opportunities for each individual child. 

Our children enjoy a range of weekly and season appropriate activities. 

We make the most of our beautiful surroundings and local amenities.  In the past these have been to places such as Birdland Park, when we were learning about dinosaurs and an invertebrate experience when exploring bugs.
