Welcome to Early Years!
Miss Tillson, Miss Parks and Mrs Kirton welcome you to our fantastic Early Years foundation stage. We have so much fun learning about our exciting topics and exploring the world around us. We always try our best with our work and we love and care for each other. We have been challenging ourselves across the curriculum and we have loved our topics so far this year. We have lots of adults that work with us in Early Years and we enjoy our time with them all.
Our Early Years Pedagogy…
We would like to offer you a warm welcome to our St Peters’ Elwick Early Years Foundation Stage Unit.
In the Foundation Stage Unit we aim to be exceptional in all that we do. Not only do we have high expectation of all the children in our care, but of the adults supporting them. We are a friendly and supportive team, who are dedicated in developing and enthusing children to learn. We strive to create a safe, welcoming and engaging learning environment where children become confident to try new activities and communicate to new peers and adults. We support and nurture children in their learning, we celebrate mistakes and praise resilience and children who ‘have a go!’. We foster an ‘I can’ attitude and take ‘always our best’ and ‘above and beyond’ care to ensure children progress and become the best they can be. The Early Years Team most importantly wants your child to be happy at school and our team are committed in supporting each and every child in the Early Years Unit.
We appreciate that no-one understands and knows your child as well as you do, therefore we place great importance on home and school links. We actively involve parents in their child’s learning and include these contributing in each child’s learning journey. We appreciate the time and dedication it takes to share your knowledge and contributions about your child and would like to thank you in advance for this support.
