Welcome to the Foundation Unit.
Our priority is to provide your child with a safe, warm and stimulating learning environment. We strive to give every child the support they need to fulfil their potential and achieve this by building positive relationships with parents and carers.
We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum meeting individual needs and interests. During this period of rapid development, we provide new challenges and opportunities to help children make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow.
We promote effective early learning through playing and exploring, active learning & creating and thinking critically. We endeavour to develop the children’s ability to make decisions and become independent learners, thus encouraging them to share responsibility for their learning.
