Our youngest children join Moorside in our Early Years phase where we enable them to learn holistically through play, exploration and experimentation.
We have taken great care in the development of our learning environment and provide a workshop style environment indoors and outside. We regularly monitor levels of involvement to ensure that all children show strong signs of concentration, persistence and energy in their self-chosen activities. Our resources have been selected so that they can provide endless possibilities, encouraging our children’s independence and actively promoting creativity and critical thinking skills. Our children are learning all the time!
We also provide children with high quality adult led direct teaching, which has been carefully planned to ensure that children make progress throughout Early Years. The following documents show how adult directed teaching is mapped out.
