Early Years & Reception

Laying the foundation for lifelong learning through creative play in a caring environment.

Outline of School

With a philosophy that is deeply rooted in learning through play, our Early Years, Nursery and Reception offers children aged 2 to 4 a warm and caring introduction to the first stage of their educational years.  Our highly experienced teaching staff follow the English Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum where The Seven Areas of Learning provide the platform for a range of inspirational and exciting learning opportunities.


Our aim is to make certain that children are valued as individuals who have different needs and interests. Their wellbeing is at the heart of our planning and we ensure that we set themes and topics to stimulate excitement and enthusiasm through guided whole class and small group activities as well as child initiated play. Our curriculum is tailored to allow them to explore and think independently whilst developing positive relationships.

Early Years

Our Early Years curriculum includes both English and Turkish language and mathematics activities as well as music and PSED (Physical, Social and Emotional Development).


In Nursery our curriculum includes phonics, communication and language activities for both Turkish and English plus activities based around mathematics. Our Nursery children also have music and PE as well as Story Time at the end of the day.


In Reception the curriculum includes Turkish and English language, handwriting, phonics, mathematics and literacy as well as weekly PE, music and art sessions.

Throughout the Early Years, Nursery and Reception curriculum we continually incorporate children’s skills and development under the characteristics of effective learning by providing opportunities to support playing and exploring, active learning, creating and thinking independently.
