The exceptional Early Years (Pre-school and Reception) provision at the school is led by experienced and well-qualified Early Years practitioners. High quality play is valued and is an important part of learning in the Early Years or Foundation Stage. The well-resourced classrooms and dedicated Foundation play areas and garden provide a stimulating and interesting environment where your child will feel safe, cared for and valued.
The learning and development in Early Years consists of three prime developmental areas (Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development) and four specific learning areas (literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design).
The Early Years Foundation Stage children at Alice Smith are curious, ask thought provoking questions and are excited by the world around them. They are proud of their discoveries and are excited to uncover even more.
