Early Years Foundation Stage

Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage Page!


Our Ethos


At Glade Hill Primary and Nursery School, we are committed to providing a high-quality early years’ education, which gives children a secure and confident start to their school life, enabling them to ‘SPARKLE’ and nurture a lifelong love of learning.  We are fully committed to the purpose and aims of the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.


“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential.  Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances.  A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right.  Good parenting and high-quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.”
