"A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step"

The Foundation Stage is a distinct phase of education that follows guidance from “The Early Years Foundation Stage” document.  It is an all through phase for children from 2-5 years old and includes Oak Tree Nursery and our Reception Class.

Nursery and reception aged groups combine to form an integrated teaching and learning provision across the Foundation Stage age range.  This Unit provides for continuity of learning experiences while including an appropriate level of challenge to meet the needs of all the children.

Within our Foundation Stage Unit there will be a team of six adults as follows:-

Mrs B Stopps

Mrs S Sheed

Mrs K Turner

Mrs P Gainsford

Mrs V Thorne

Mrs G Inder

Mrs I Natelson-Carter
