Focus Nursery School

It is well known that the greatest changes in our development occur when we are very young and that 80% of out intellect is formed before the age of five. At Focus the staff recognise this and accept the responsibility they have for enabling every child to perform as well as they can. We use our wide experience to plan challenging activities to meet and sometimes exceed the requirements of the Department for Education and skills guidance on the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Just as importantly, the unwritten curriculum, which happens spontaneously, contributes very strongly to our great success and high reputation, especially in the Personal, Social and Emotional Development of the children. We have a strong, clear emphasis on learning through play, self motivation, enquiry and discovery. Play underpins the delivery of the Early Years Foundation Stage. Children have the freedom to access opportunities both inside and outside.
