Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage at Grove Primary and Nursery School


The children in our Nursery and Reception classes thrive in an environment crafted by skilled practitioners who understand the key principles of Early Years education. All of our Nursery and Reception staff work closely together to create a curriculum that meets the needs of each individual child. Children enjoy developing skills and knowledge through a range of activities in our carefully planned and resourced environment.  Staff carefully plan next steps of learning from observing children in play as well as from some more formal assessments. This way learning comes directly from the children's interests and individual needs. Throughout their time with us in the EYFS children are also supported and encouraged to develop their characteristics of learning thus laying the foundation for future learning success.


We follow the Non Statutory Guidance for Early Years as well as the EYFS Profile Handbook.
