Bluebirds Early Years

Welcome to the Foundation Stage at Eden Park Academy

Our unit has a warm, happy atmosphere where purposeful learning takes place. The teaching and support staff are enthusiastic, hard-working and caring. We aim to provide a quality education for your child and hope that you will work in partnership with us towards this.

We aim to provide a nurturing, secure and well supervised environment which promotes young children’s emotional, social, creative and physical development. Through this type of environment we encourage the children to become independent and self-confident learners.

We have three bases within our Foundation Unit:

  • ‘Wrens’ is a separate room for our youngest children who enter in the term after they are two years old.
  • The Nursery and Reception children access two rooms: ‘Sparrows’ is a large double classroom used by all the children as well as serving as the Nursery base.
  • ‘Starlings’ is an adjoined classroom used by the Reception children.
  • All the children in the Foundation Unit can access a covered patio area outside as well as a large garden with climbing equipment, wildlife area and vegetable area as well as a sand pit and hard path for bikes.
