New! Now welcoming children from 2 years old!

21 July 2016

Starting this August, we are delighted to welcome young children aged 24-36 months in our Early Years Learning Programme.


We aim to provide a warm, loving and stimulating environment in which children aged 24-36 months can feel a sense of belonging, and thrive.

7 areas of Learning

Areas of learning are based on the Early Years Foundation Stage from the English National Curriculum. By observing and recording each stage of their development, practitioners guide the children through play and planned activities, to ensure that they gain experiences that will encourage:

Physical development
Communication and Language skills
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Mathematical Learning
An understanding of the World
Creative Development
A love of Literacy

A bilingual start in life

Children are exposed to both English and French both of which are spoken in class, and through dedicated language sessions.

During the day children are given time for learning through play, as well as more structured activities such as singing, music, rhyming, physical movement, games, arts and crafts, construction, and by exploring with colour, texture and different materials.  Activities encourage independence, and social skills. The EYFS has its own dedicated outside play area and a large hall for movement activities.
