At St. Stephen’s, we recognise the importance of Early Years Education. This is where the values of learning, respect and leadership are established. We are blessed with a happy, secure and creative learning environment, with indoor and outdoor learning spaces, and a truly warm and caring family community which greatly supports a meaningful start to our 2 to 5 years olds’ learning journey.
Our Early Years department, staffed with qualified teachers and Teaching Assistants, provides a broad and balanced high quality curriculum in line with the UK Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) guidance, adapted to meet the needs of international learners. We believe in the importance of building a strong foundation for the children to begin “Lifelong learning” along with respecting themselves and others.
We actively support children’s learning, creativity and critical thinking by providing high standard learning experiences that meet the individual needs and interests of the children through play, investigation and learning through doing. Our children proudly achieve their Early Learning Goals with independence and confidence.
Remember, children play as a rehearsal for life.
