Early Years Foundation Stage


At Lodge Lane we treat children as individuals and celebrate the way in which we all learn and achieve differently

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which is supported by the Early Excellence Tracking system.  The characteristics of effective learning – playing and exploring, active learning and creating and thinking critically – underpin everything that we do.

We plan in a way that follows the interests of the children. We also have adult focus times to ensure there is challenge and engagement across the learning experiences. We have Indoor and outdoor spaces that the children use for free flow to encourage independence and skills for lifelong learning.
