Foundation Stage

Our Foundation Stage consists of a large 60 place nursery (F1) and a newly converted 60 place Reception Unit (F2). We share a lovely outside learning area where all of our children enjoy playing together; and a playground where the Nursery children play at lunchtime. We also use our playground for wheeled toys and small games equipment.

At Southglade we place a lot of emphasis on learning through play and we encourage our children to be independent, choosing their own resources and leading their own learning. We want our children to be inquisitive, creative and innovative with the resilience to keep on trying! Our learning environment is designed so that children can easily find (and put away!) everything they need. The rooms are organised into areas covering all aspects of the Foundation Stage Curriculum.
The role of the adults in supporting children’s development is also crucial. Through careful observations, shared play, challenging questions and focus activities we ensure that every child is challenged to reach their full potential.

We aim to make Southglade foundation Stage an exciting and enjoyable place to learn.
