Early Years - New Starters

As Nursery and Reception are the children’s first experiences of school, we work hard to ensure that every day is engaging, stimulating and meaningful. The play-based curriculum underpins all future learning by developing the children’s social and personal skills whilst building positive attitudes towards learning. Our dedicated and passionate Early Years team nurtures and creates a positive learning environment for all children at Co-op Academy Parkland. 

The EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) is divided into three prime areas of learning:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development

The four specific areas of learning are:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
