Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfill their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s early experiences have a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in providing the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up. At Drapers Mills we aim to work together with parents and carers to ensure that all children are supported in achieving their full potential.  

Learning takes place both inside and outside and we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, which is underpinned by four themes:

  • A recognition that all children are unique and have the potential to be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured learners.
  •  Positive relationships help children to learn to be strong and independent.
  • Children learn and develop best in enabling environments which respond to their needs and where there are strong partnerships between practitioners and parents/carers.
  •  Settings are encouraged to foster the characteristics of effective early learning which are:

                    *  Playing and exploring

                    *  Active learning

                    * Creating and thinking critically.

Our topics are led by the children’s interests and develop according to their needs.
