Curriculum Framework & Subjects

Early Years Foundation Stage


The Foundation Stage is from birth to 5 years. This includes Nursery and Reception. St Mary’s is a high quality setting for your child and offers a range of different plans to accommodate your needs. Our approach is a combination of child-initiated activities and adult led education, based on active learning and problem solving. Clear routines are in place to support the children as they progress through the Foundation Stage. In Reception, children continue to have many opportunities for child-initiated activities and independent learning as well as a more formal approach to reading, writing and maths.
