Reception Learning Overview

Early Learning Goals

The New Early Years Reforms

The Department for Education has published a new guide for parents, produced by Sheringham Nursery School and Children’s Centre – ‘What to Expect in the Early Years Foundation Stage’ (formally called ‘What to Expect When’) which guides parents and carers through what to expect in their child’s development. It aligns with guidance given to schools to help practitioners and parents. Please click on the link below to view the document. 

50 Things is an exciting initiative that supports children’s learning at home. It is inspired by parents and carers with each activity developed by Early Years experts and language specialists to create a fabulous resource for families.
