The Bishop Gilpin Nursery is led by qualified teachers and follows the Government’s “Early Years Foundation Stage” (EYFS) curriculum which sets out the key learning objectives from birth to age 5 (end of Reception). This promotes knowledge and develops skills in children’s learning in seven main areas:
- Personal, Social, Emotional
- Communication and Language
- Expressive Arts and Design
- Understanding the World
These seven areas are used to plan your child’s learning activities. Within these areas there are separate Early Learning Goals which we aim for children to achieve by the time they finish both nursery and reception.
In the EYFS we follow the Bishop Gilpin ethos and aims, incorporating growth mindset and learning through the 4R’s.
Class Times and Sizes
Bishop Gilpin Nursery offers either a morning session or an afternoon session (each with 2 classes) from Monday to Friday for children aged three until reception. The maximum number of children in each in each class is 26.
