All children within the nursery school are encouraged to develop their potential at their own pace. The children are offered different experiences at each session, activities are carefully planned and selected so that children are able to follow a curriculum which enables them to make maximum progress towards the Early Learning Goals related to the Early Years Foundation Stage which starts from birth and follows through to the end of the reception year.
