Foundation Stage

Garrett Hall Nursery and Reception

 

The Foundation Curriculum

The Foundation Curriculum is designed to involve children in a rewarding and enjoyable experience. Through the range of areas outlined above the children will learn through exploration and discovery. They will learn through creative activities where they will practise skills and develop understanding and knowledge. This new curriculum reflects the importance of play in a young child’s life and is not designed to be overly formal, yet prepares them fully for Key Stage One. Some of the time will be spent in outdoor play where all areas of the curriculum are also taught.
