The Early Years Foundation Stage at Finborough is a special place to be, where children learn in a safe and caring community. This exciting key stage encompasses the Nursery and Reception year groups at our school.

Our aims are linked to the Every Child Matters agenda, in that every child has a right to grow up safe, healthy, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and achieving economic well­being. Here at Finborough Nursery we follow both the Montessori Method and the Early Years Foundation Stage, both of which complement each other and ensure that every child’s personality is nurtured through guidance and play.
