Reception & Early Years
At Courthouse Green our vision for Early Years is to support children to become lifelong resilient learners with a positive attitude and the ability to work with others.
Our aims are to provide exciting and meaningful learning opportunities for children that support the development of the early skills needed to be a successful learner throughout school. Learning is practical and play based, taking place both indoors and outdoors. Children have choice and independence in resourcing and initiating their own learning, taking responsibility for their own resources and actions within a safe and supportive environment. Open ended opportunities encourage children to investigate and explore, asking questions and developing possibilities. Adults play and learn alongside the children, skilfully moving children’s learning on through questioning and sustained shared thinking strategies.
Across the foundation stage we provide a broad, balanced, differentiated curriculum which addresses the children‘s social, emotional, physical, intellectual, moral and cultural development within a safe, secure, stimulating environment.
