In Tornedale Foundation Stage, we aim to give all children the very best opportunities for effective learning and development by providing a happy and stimulating learning environment. Our experienced team support children in becoming independent learners and in developing a positive sense of themselves and others.
When children join us in Nursery and Reception they follow the Foundation Stage curriculum which covers seven areas of learning.
These consist of:
Three Prime Areas:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language
Four Specific Areas:
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
These seven areas are used to plan the children's learning and activities. Our EYFS team will ensure that activities planned are suited to the child's unique needs. Our curriculum is designed to be really flexible so that staff can follow the children's unique needs and interests.
Children in our Foundation Stage learn by playing and exploring, being active and through creative and critical thinking which takes place in both our indoor and outdoor environment.
