In our Early Years Foundation Stage, we believe that play is at the heart of all learning. The girls are encouraged to experience a wide range of activities to ensure that they develop as well rounded, independent learners.

Our vibrant open classrooms and outdoor learning area provide the safe, nurturing environment for the girls to engage in active learning with first-hand experiences. With the support of our experienced staff team, they quickly learn to socialise and make friends, working and playing alongside each other. We encourage parents to be actively involved in their daughter’s learning experiences through our interactive online journey.

Your daughter will be taught mainly by her class teacher and teaching assistant and the daily routine is flexible to give girls every opportunity to experience learning through child initiated play as well as guided play and directed teaching.
