"The best classroom and the richest cupboard are roofed only by the sky"  Margaret McMillan 

At St Stephen's, we understand that a child’s first year in school is one of the most important as it lays the foundations for a lifelong love of learning and will foster a positive attitude towards education. We aim to provide every child with a broad and balanced curriculum of both adult directed teaching and child-initiated purposeful play, rich in exciting learning opportunities to help develop happy, confident, self-motivated learners!


Our Curriculum


We follow the statutory Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework for children aged 0-5  We will therefore be building on the good work already started by preschools, nurseries and childminders to enable each child to reach their full potential. This framework is a means of ensuring high standards of early education and care that will reassure parents that their child’s development is being fully supported. It underpins all future learning. It encourages positive attitudes and dispositions towards learning in the children and promotes learning through play.
