Fox Cubs combines the school’s nursery environment with its Reception year.
We provide an environment that is stimulating, warm and caring, in which pupils are encouraged to develop confidence through planned play and structured learning activities. We foster each child’s natural curiosity and thirst for knowledge with a varied curriculum including classroom learning, outdoor play, activities and field trips. These may include visits to local vets, churches, fire stations and wildlife centres.
The curriculum in the early years focuses on six areas of learning and development:
Personal, social and emotional
Communication, language and literacy
Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy
Knowledge and understanding of the world
We ensure that there is a balance of learning and playtime. The day is structured to encourage learning and flexibility through a calm atmosphere and a gentle routine. Children are encouraged to be inquisitive, enthusiastic and are always rewarded with praise and recognition for their achievements.
