Early Years

Welcome to Early Years!



In Early Years Foundation Stage, we have a committed team of staff who, daily, show dedication to providing high quality Early Years education for all children. 


We aim to work in close partnership with parents and carers to ensure all children accessing our provision begin to build the foundations of their Cheviot Learning Journey in a safe, happy and nurturing environment. We thoroughly believe that every child is unique and it is our duty to plan a variety of exciting learning opportunities, where they constantly learn and become resilient, capable, confident and self-assured individuals.


We recognise the importance of Early Years education in supporting children to develop and progress both now and throughout their educational lives. Through play-based learning and adult supported activities we endeavour to provide each child with a range of opportunities which stimulates their creativity and support their development.


'The best support a child can have is that of each and every adult involved in their life; this is how they will progress, develop and flourish!'


We hope you enjoy taking the time to explore the Early Years section of our website and that it provides insight into our provision.


Our Philosophy About How Children Learn


  • Actively involve the children in their own learning – following their interests.
  • We must provide the best learning environment we can.
  • Consistent daily routine.
  • Facilitate and support children’s depth of learning, by ensuring the interaction between the children and adults is varied, appropriate, consistent and stimulating.
  • Provide challenge for the children.
  • Making time to connect with children and observe them to refine efforts and support the learning more effectively – making planning and assessment more rigorous and dynamic.
  • Recognise families as partners in their children’s education, who offer unique cultural experience and need to be involved in the curriculum.
  • Staff must be part of the current thinking and research into Early Years Education, aspire to the highest standards and access training to promote this.



The natural way for young children to learn is through play! 

At Cheviot, play is at the heart of our children’s Early Years’ experience!
