Welcome to First Steps
First Steps is the start of your child’s journey here at St. Wilfrid’s, we are a Foundation Stage Unit which means we have Nursery and Reception children within our environment. Our aim is to provide them with a broad and balanced curriculum which encourages the intellectual, social, physical, spiritual, moral and cultural development of all the children in First Steps.
There are 7 areas of learning:
- Personal, social, emotional development
- Physical development
- Communication and language
- Understanding the world
- Expressive arts and design
The Foundation Stage will be both formal ad informal. We assess the children by stage not age so that every child can fulfill his/her potential.
