Welcome to Early Years!
In Early Years, we lay the foundations for learning.
We provide a rich and exciting curriculum both indoors and outdoors. We believe that all children deserve the best possible start with their time at school so that they will grow to become “confident, lifelong learners”.
At Bond, we recognise that every child is unique and that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. We follow the statutory framework for Early Years and so all our pupils will cover the 3 prime areas of learning and the 4 specific areas of learning.
