Early Years

 Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage


The children's learning takes place through play, independent exploration, child initiated and teacher led activities inside and outside the classroom. Children see this way of learning as fun. Throughout the coming year as they get to grips with socialising, sharing, talking and listening to one another they gain the prime skills they need to start them off on their learning journey into the specific skills they need to fully access the curriculum. You also play a big part in this learning journey because you know your child better than anyone, with your support working alongside us you can help your child to a bright and successful future here at Button Lane.


In the Foundation Stage, we cover seven areas of development and learning. Please click on here to find out more about them.
