Our Early Years strives to promote communication and language, physical development and personal social and emotional development as the golden threads that are woven into our every day curriculum. We believe that by highlighting these prime areas, we are facilitating and unlocking a world full of potential for our children. We provide a learning experience that is bespoke to St Mary's Fields and to every cohort, based on their needs identified at baseline, emerging trends and our continual gap analysis to support our planning and provision. Every member of our team is actively involved in high quality observation and interaction; promoting exploration and curiosity through play.
