Welcome to the Foundation Stage family!
At Launde, we understand the importance of the Early Years Foundation Stage. Our aim is to provide the experiences each child needs to become the best version of themselves.
Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life. A secure, safe and happy childhood is extremely important. Working with you as parents and carers mixed with high quality early learning, provides the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they develop.
We believe that all children are capable of amazing things and by having high expectations of all children we can achieve anything. We aim to pose challenges, build confidence and self-esteem, show children how capable they are and support them to reach their potential. This is achieved through careful, thoughtful planning, teaching and assessment throughout the Foundation year.
We have three classes across the foundation base, Fourfold, Poppyfield and Beehive.
Who you will meet in Foundation:
