We want children children to extend their cultural capital through a learning environment that actively encourages curiosity, inquisitiveness, problem-solving and a love of learning.
Our Early Years setting provides a happy, exciting, safe and fun learning environment. An environment where children are allowed and encouraged to examine, explore, share, make friends and express themselves.
We believe that the Early Years is crucial in embedding solid foundations that children are going to build upon. It is our intent that the children who join us in their early years develop verbally, emotionally, physically and cognitively whilst securing a positive attitude to their learning.
All children will be valued as individuals and we are passionate in allowing children to maximise their potential.
SLT and EYFS Lead will support all adults to understand our intent.

At Drapers Mills we use a secure online learning journal called Tapestry to build a record of a child’s experiences, development and learning journey through their early years education.
Your child’s progress and learning will be captured in their online learning journal, which is available for parents to view at any time and available in app form.
We encourage our parents to be fully involved, as we want to create a precious and valued record of your child’s journey through their early years.
Photographs and observations about your child playing and exploring at home and in the Nursery generates a unique record to share with the whole family.
The communication between staff and parents that Tapestry enables, helps build a shared understanding of how every child can reach their full potential, as they begin their learning journey with us.
