Little Learners 2023 - 2024

Mrs McCarthy

Welcome to Little Learners!


Learning and teaching should not stand on opposite banks and just watch the river flow by; instead they should embark together on a journey down the water. Through an active reciprocal exchange, teaching can strengthen learning how to learn.

We are extremely privileged to support children at the very beginning of their learning journey at Grove Street. We provide 15 hours per week of high-quality care and education, with a focus on learning through play.

Our curriculum:

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the national curriculum for children aged five and under. There are three prime areas of learning:


There are also four specific areas of learning:


Your child will be assessed in each of these areas during their play to enable us to understand how we can best support them in the next steps of their learning journey. We will complete a Two Year Progress Check to identify your childs strengths and any areas that they may need support in. When appropriate, we will seek advice from external agencies and work closely with them to ensure that we are achieving the best level of support for our children from the start. We understand the importance of early intervention and how making it our priority can improve the outcomes and future success of the children in our care.
