Welcome to Nursery 2021



Every child in Nursery is allocated a key worker.  You will be informed of your child's key worker who will;

  • Work alongside parents and carers to ensure that there is continuity of care for the child thus supporting the child’s emotional well-being.
  • Observes the child to identify how they learn through their play, their next aspect of development, what their interests are, whether there is any cause for concern or need for extra support.
  • Keep a record of your child's learning journey and update it regularly on Tapestry.




In the Early Years we have developed a wonderful curriculum which caters for the children's interests.  The overview below contains an outline of the topics we cover, but the content of the topics are adapted according to the needs and interests of our children. To find out more information about our EYFS curriculum please see the curriculum map below. 


For more information on the new Early Years Curriculum 2021 please go to - Key Information- Curriculum - Early Years. 

Alternatively please go to the bottom of the page and click on the document 'Development matters ages and stages'.
