Welcome to the Early Years
Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage at Saint Nathaniel's Academy.
We are a big family in the Early Years ranging from 2-5 years old. We have our two year old provision Squirrel Lodge, Nursery and Reception.
In our Early Years setting we provide a vibrant and stimulating environment to engage children with their education. We strive to ensure that the children get the best possible start to their school life by providing a fun, safe, purposeful and engaging curriculum.

The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum is based on seven areas of learning consisting of Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Expressive Arts and Design and Understanding the World.
All children learn across the seven areas of learning and they learn through their play with a combination of child initiated and teacher led learning opportunities both indoors and in our fantastic outdoor areas. Children are observed during play in order to assess their stage of development and in order to plan for their next steps and their future learning.
Intent, Implementation and Impact
Here at Saint Nathaniel’s Academy we have designed our EYFS curriculum to ensure it is fully inclusive to every child. Our aims are to fulfil the requirements of the EYFS providing a safe, engaging, exciting and stimulating curriculum. Our curriculum ensures the progressive development of concepts, knowledge and skills and encourages the children to develop a love of learning that will equip them for today and tomorrow.
