Early Years Foundation Stage

At Mount Pleasant Primary School we have:

Early Years where N1 children (aged 2 at 31/08 but turning 3 during the year) are able to start their education. The Early Years setting is lead by our qualified Nursery Manager who is supported by Learning Support Assistants.

Foundation Stage 1 is for N2 children (aged 3 at 31st of August but turning 4 during the year).

Foundation Stage 2 is for children aged 4 at 31st August and is often termed ‘Reception Year’.

Our combined  FS1 and FS2 class is lead by a qualified teacher supported by a Learning Support Assistant.

All N1 and N2 children are admitted to EYFS on a fee paying basis and children in the term after their third birthday are entitled to 15 hours free child care which is provided each morning between 09:00 and 12:00.
