At Talbot’s Nursery we work with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum which sets out six areas of learning. These are:-
- Personal, social and emotional development
- Communication, language and literacy including; following Letters and Sounds and Jolly Phonics
- Problem solving reasoning and numbers
- Knowledge and understanding of the world
- Physical development including: Soccer Tots, Dance, Yoga, and Tot’s Tennis.
- Creative development
Each of these areas has a set of stepping stones that progress towards the Early Learning Goals, for which the caring and experienced staff coordinate exciting activities to meet the needs of each child. Learning is encouraged through play and includes adult focus and child initiated activities to involve each area. The ‘EYFS’ has an enclosed outdoor area where the children have access to a variety of play equipment, role play gardening and a quiet area. This space is valued and enjoyed by staff and children and is accessed throughout the day.
**Application for Nursery places is by completion of an LA form available from the school office. Parents are welcome to visit the school by prior arrangement with the School Office.
