At William Stockton, we ‘Achieve Excellence’ in our Early Years and across our school. Our priority is that all children have a happy start to their school life and they enjoy each and every day that they spend with us.
Our EYFS provision consists of a Nursery class and a two-form entry Reception. In the EYFS, we believe that children learn best through a balance of play based activities, first hand experiences, as well as carefully planned adult directed tasks. They have the opportunity to think creatively, investigate and solve problems both individually and within a group.
Our warm, welcoming and safe environments provide each individual child with the opportunity to play, develop and learn. A place where parents and children feel valued and involved.
The EYFS Framework
The EYFS framework includes 7 areas of learning and development that are equally important and inter-connected. However, 3 areas known as the prime areas are seen as particularly important for igniting curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building children’s capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.
