Welcome to Heather Garth Foundation Stage!

Foundation Stage is made up of our Nursery (FS1) and our Reception class (FS2). We work together to provide a caring and stimulating learning environment and to meet the needs of each individual child.  We are committed to the highest standards of teaching and learning achieved through a combination of challenge, support, encouragement and praise.

The Foundation Stage Unit has been designed and organised to promote positive engaging environments for children to learn in.  We believe in the importance of outdoor learning and use our exciting outdoor area regularly for our continuous provision and adult led directed activities.

We want our children to enjoy their first experience of school life and give them the secure foundations and enthusiasm to begin their learning journey.

FS1 is taught by Mrs Roach (EYFS teacher),  Mrs Salt (Early Years Practitioner) and Miss Wordsworth (Early Years Practitioner). All adults within the unit (FS1 and FS2 staff) work with all children throughout the day. 


Things you’ll need to know:

Morning session times are 8.30 am - 11.30 am

Afternoon session times are 12.05 pm - 3.05 pm

Full day session times are 9.00 am - 3.05 pm

We also have a breakfast club that FS1 children can access.  

FS1 have access to milk and a healthy snack during their session which is provided free of charge.

We actively support parents in completing children’s toilet training. Please speak with Early Years staff about this if necessary.

We play outside most weather so please send your child in weather appropriate outside clothing and a pair of wellies to leave in school.

Your child will need a change of footwear for indoor use.  Pupils can wear pumps, crocs or slippers for indoor use, but NO big novelty slippers please.
