What is the Foundation Stage Unit?
The Foundation Stage Unit is a learning environment for children who are in the Foundation Stage phase of their education which is between the ages of 3 and 5 years.
The Foundation Stage is a distinct stage which is important in its own right and we believe it is crucial in preparing children for later schooling.
The Foundation Stage Unit includes children from the September after their third birthday until the end of their Reception Year. We recognise it as a crucial in education, both in its own right and in preparing children for learning in Key Stage one. We believe that all children should be given the best possible start to their education. Great value is placed on the quality of our provision in the Foundation Stage by providing all of the children with stimulating activities that are appropriate for their age and stage of development. It is recognised that when children join us, they will already have had a range of experiences and they will also have a range of skills and interests; therefore the curriculum is carefully planned so that their learning is always moving forward.
