Early Years Foundation Stage
The Early Years Foundation Stage at Flash Ley
Our Early Years Foundation Stage prides itself on creating a nurturing environment in which all children are able to learn, grow in confidence and make many happy memories that they cherish. Our team at Flash Ley place the pupils at the heart of everything that they do.
Equal opportunities are provided through a range of activities designed to engage and stimulate the minds of the children within our setting. We work to create a setting where children feel safe and can play and explore, actively learn and create and think critically. These opportunities are established through a multi-sensory approach to learning, which is accessible for all types of children and is designed to capture and inspire the inquisitive nature of children in Early Years.
At Flash Ley we understand that Nursery and Reception is an important year for children, parents and carers. For many children it is the first time that they leave their main carer for a long period of time. We pride ourselves on the important relationships we make with families and the extensive transition programme we have in place throughout the school year. In the Summer term, your child will spend a week getting to know their new teachers, friends and environment. This helps to address any worries or concerns before the Summer Holidays.
Each second of everyday is a new learning opportunity for your child. The vibrant and stimulating inside and outside environments are planned to enhance, engage and encourage your child's independent learning. WOW moments including educational visits, class assemblies, Winter productions, stay and play sessions as well as a child led learning curriculum, visits from the Animal Man and Farm on Wheels gives your child wider learning opportunities.
