Together the Nursery and Reception classes make up the Foundation Stage. At Christ the King all children in the foundation stage follow a curriculum called the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and this is broken down into 7 curriculum areas.
In line with Government guidelines and best practice our Foundation Stage curriculum is less formal than the work in the rest of the school. Learning is frequently child-directed and experiential. Sometimes parents are a little worried that “all they seem to do is play”. It may look like this; and it is certainly fun in the Foundation Stage; but there is actually a lot of learning taking place.
