We are all very excited because Great Notley, Busy Bees have been chosen to house the new Foundation class in our pre-school age group. The new concept will provide all the children with a warm and friendly introduction to school life. Our setting will also be known as Busy Bees Great Notley Nursery and Foundation class.
The foundation class will be a bespoke environment and be built around the concept that children should be inquisitive learners which will be promoted through the extension to learning that will enhance the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework to prepare each and every child for school. The area will deliver an exciting enabling environment which will be open spaced with natural bespoke furniture and resources and also media to explore. The curriculum will be based on the EYFS reinforced by provoking learning which is drawn upon from the child, recognising the importance of nurturing positive relationships and tailoring the environment to meet the needs and interests of each unique child.
The changes will be taking place very soon and we will be planning a parents evening once everything is in place. This will be a great opportunity to explore the Foundation Class environment, resources and range of activities offered.
