The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) applies to children from birth to the end of the Reception year.  At Carnforth this consists of:

Nursery (3-4 years)                                                        Reception (4-5 years)

In the Early Years at Carnforth, we strive to provide the highest quality care and education for all our children, thereby giving them a strong foundation for their future learning.

We create a safe and happy environment with motivating and enjoyable learning experiences that enable children to become confident and independent. We value the individual child and work alongside parents/carers and others to meet their needs and help every child to reach their full potential.

We plan an exciting and challenging curriculum, based on our observation of children’s needs, interests, and stages of development across the seven areas of learning to enable the children to achieve the early learning goals and successfully transition into Year 1.
