At ABC Nursery and Preschool we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the government’s statutory framework that sets the standards that all Early Years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe.

It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children are ready for school and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

You can find detailed information on EYFS on the government’s website here.

PE sessions

We will work to promote the children’s independence by concentrating on furthering their dressing and undressing skills in preparation for their PE session in Reception.  Our PE sessions will run ones a week, every time on a different day.  Please provide your child with a named PE bag (to be left at school), including a pair shorts, a t-shirt and suitable PE footwear (plimsolls, trainers, canvas shoes – no Crocs, please).  The children will be exploring different movements through PE games and dance which will further develop their confidence and body control.  We will be talking about the changes to their bodies when active and the importance of keeping healthy.

Rising Fives sessions

Our ever-popular Rising 5’s session takes part on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday term time only

Rising Five’s is a specialised group aimed at children we believe are developmentally ready for a slightly more structured session, and for older children we can prepare for school. We take great pride in our planning and ensure that our plans offer activities that challenge and stimulate the child to enable them to reach their full potential.
