Welcome to the EYFS

What is Early Years like at Mersey Drive?


Early Years at Mersey Drive consists of two classes (Nursery /Reception) from 3 to 5 years of age sharing a large purpose built indoor and outdoor area. We play together, learn alongside each other and help one another. We are good role models to one another and work hard to develop a pride in learning to do things independently.

 

How do the children learn?

Children’s learning is planned very carefully to meet their individual needs. Some learning is led by an adult, including their teacher or Early Years Practitioner. Other activities are set out each session in the indoor and outdoor spaces for the children to access as they choose. This is called Continuous Provision.
Staff will observe children during both adult led sessions and in continuous provision to make assessments about children’s skills, interests and abilities across the curriculum areas. These observations are fed into the next cycle of planning and they are collected in the child’s Learning Journey; a personal folder of photographs and observations which forms the basis of our assessment of each child’s development. We encourage you to include learning information from home such as ‘Proud Cloud’ moments when your child masters something new or photographs of special times for your child.
