The Foundation Stage
During Reception, now called the Foundation Stage, children follow a different curriculum to those in Year 1 and 2 (Key Stage 1). Here, there is a greater emphasis on a child’s developmental needs, with a focus on learning through 'real world' and meaningful activities. The Nursery has worked with such a curriculum for some time and now this focus on the importance of play and child led investigation is central to learning approaches across early year’s education. To find out more please take a look at our Reception pages.
