Curriculum Intent

Our curriculum intent is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage and is taught by our team of dedicated and caring practitioners.

We have planned our curriculum based on a wealth of knowledge and experience and what we believe children should experience during their time with us.

When planning activities and assessing your children we use the Development Matters framework as guidance to enable further development for your children and to help them realise their potential.
