Foundation Stage

“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right. Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.”

Taken from the EYFS Statutory Framework DfE, 2014

Your child may start their journey at Ninelands in either our Nursery or join us at the start of the academic year in Reception. Whichever starting point your child has, our aim is to embed positive learning behaviours and a life-long love of learning in a safe and engaging environment.

At Ninelands our approach towards Early Education is centred around a holistic curriculum. The curriculum followed is ‘Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)’. We are passionate that learning is not confined to within the indoor classrooms and are extremely fortunate to have a large outdoor area too. We consider both areas to be an invaluable tool to support learning, we utilise these areas to encourage exploration and fascination of the world around them. 

Your child’s learning will follow their personal interests closely and be adapted to meet your child’s individual needs, which is paramount to ensuring they receive a high standard of care. We celebrate every child’s uniqueness and believe it is essential to encourage self-belief, independence, confidence and their emotional wellbeing. We also offer full time nursery provision from 7.30am to 6pm utilising our own Out of School Club. See our flyer for further information or contact school on outofschoolclub@ninelands-school.co.uk

As a whole Early Years Team, we look forward to meeting both you and your child and hope we have the opportunity to nurture, support and educate them during their Early Years.
