Early Years Foundation Stage

“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and support to fulfill their potential. A child’s experience in the early years has a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right, and it provides the foundation for children to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.” ‘

'Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage’

EYFS at Heron is an enriching, creative and stimulating environment in which to learn and our aim is for your child to have a positive and inspiring start to their school life with us. We strive to provide an exciting and inspiring curriculum that allows children to learn through imaginative and real-life experiences. We aim to follow children’s interests and plan through careful assessment of their own needs and interests.

We hope your child will have a fantastic time learning at Heron and will thrive in our learning environment. We are a friendly and welcoming team who promise to take good care of your children. If you ever need to speak to a member of the team, please do not hesitate to contact us.
