Nursery and Reception
At St Stephen’s we aim to provide our children with the foundation they need to thrive in life. We believe our children learn best in a stimulating and engaging environment. Through inquiry-based learning and play, our curriculum aims to engage and stimulate young children and nurture their academic, personal and social development.
We are committed to each child making progress and we provide a wide range of activities that enable the children to become independent learners, who are willing to take risks.
The resources and materials available to the children are of a high quality, open-ended, well-ordered and accessible to the children. They are carefully selected for their potential to promote learning and sustained high-level involvement. Resources and contexts are available which motivate the children to explore and problem solve, play imaginatively and make representations (to paint, draw, create models, dance and make music). These opportunities are available in the indoor and outdoor environments.
We extend our classroom provision with a range of interesting trips and out of school activities throughout the year. We also arrange for school visiting specialists and resources to enrich the curriculum.
We work closely with our parents and carers as we understand the importance of parent support in their child’s learning. We offer regular coffee mornings, which help support parents with the different areas of the curriculum and parents have the opportunity for ‘stay and play sessions in the EYFS. This gives parents the opportunity to engage with their children during the school day and see how their child is developing at school.
