We pride ourselves on our Early Years provision. Starting school can be a daunting experience for parents and children so our experienced staff ensure the process is a positive and happy one. This is the first stage of your child's learning journey so we help this process by:
- a settling in programme for children and parents which includes meetings and visits to the school prior to September start
- providing a wealth of information about getting ready for school and life at St Elizabeth's
- a home visit after the Summer holiday, before your child has their first day in school
We use the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework (September 2021) as our base for the opportunities and provision that we provide to children in their first year of school. This is a continuation of the learning and experiences they would have accessed in their nursery or pre-school setting. There is a great emphasis on learning through direct, first hand experiences in a play based environment. This allows children to develop the skills needed in preparation for their National Curriculum education that commences in Year 1.
