Early Years

Welcome to Hotham Early Years Foundation Stage!

We believe every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support which will enable them to fulfil their potential.

The Early Years Foundation Stage is a very important stage as it helps prepare children for future learning and success.  We believe children’s early years’ experience should be happy, active, fun and secure: and support their development, care and learning needs.

We strive to provide children with memorable and exciting learning experiences!  We allow children to take ownership of their own learning, encouraging them to be active and independent learners.  The learning environment we create ensures that self-initiated learning is automatic and spontaneous, leading to enthusiastic, curious and confident children with enquiring minds.

We hope the learning process will be a ‘two way process’ where we share and celebrate your child’s success, achievement and development together.

   

Starting in the Early Years

At the end of the summer term we arrange meetings for parents of children starting Nursery/ Reception. This gives you an opportunity to meet the staff, hear all about the curriculum, find out what a typical day entails and a chance to ask any questions and share any information you would like to with our staff. 

Information will be sent out to parents electronically and there will also a pack sent home with hard copies of the supporting resources below. 

Parent presentations will be loaded onto the website once the meetings have taken place.
