Early Years Foundation Stage

In the Early Years at St. Andrew's, we give our children the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. 

We provide all children with a safe and stimulating opportunities that build on their individual needs and interests. Praise and clear boundaries contribute to building confidence and resilience. We believe in praising effort and valuing the little steps which really make a difference to the children’s progress and self-esteem.

In Reception, children learn through play and adult directed activities; learning is fun, engaging and suitably challenging. We value the importance of our EYFS environment which offers the children the opportunity to develop their thinking and problem-solving skills. Adults provide high-quality interactions and role models for learning.

We are dedicated to teaching our children lifelong skills through our broad, play based curriculum which is balanced with child-initiated and adult-led activities.
