Yeo Moor Primary School

Yeo Moor Primary School

Nursery and pre-school

We are excited to announce the opening of our and nursery and pre-school on 29th January 2024. We have been working closely with the local authority to establish our provision to a high standard.

From January 2024 we will provide pre-school education for children between the ages of 3-4 years. From September 2024 this will extend to include children between the ages of 2-3 years. 

At Yeo Moor we provide an extraordinary education, value individuality and prepare children with the knowledge, skills and values to be lifelong learners in an ever changing world.

We offer innovative learning opportunities that will inspire curiosity, develop inquiring minds and maximise learning potential for all children.

The pre-school curriculum is enriching, meaningful and active so that our children can become fully immersed in their learning. The children will learn through a series of well-planned ‘themed enquiries’ to engage them in a broad range of learning opportunities.

Our curriculum for the foundation stage is based on the 7 areas of learning within the EYFS Framework.

The 7 areas of leaning are:  Communication and Language, Personal Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the world, Expressive arts and design.

Also influencing the delivery of the curriculum are the 4 themes of the EYFS: The Unique Pupil, Positive Relationships, Enabling Environment, Learning & Development.

Children will learn through fully immersive ‘joy filled’ experiences where their teachers facilitate and challenge them to ensure they can meet their full learning potential.
