Our curriculum and practices are created and delivered in accordance to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Ofsted regulations. 

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the standard set for education, teaching, learning and care of 0 to 5-year-olds. It was introduced as part of the 2006 Childcare Act and must be followed by all Ofsted registered settings and childminders.

Ofsted are the government regulatory body who inspect and regulate services providing education and children care providers. Their role is to make sure that organisations providing education, training and care services in England do so to a high standard for children and students.

Our Nursery Vision

We believe all children have the right to be understood as individuals and to be given time and opportunity to develop as creative, competent learners in a secure and inspiring space, with lots of access to the outdoors. Our vision is to create a place that values caring, respectful relationships.
