Lenthall Infant & Nursery School

Welcome to Lenthall's Early Years

If children feel safe, they can take risks, ask questions, make mistakes, learn to trust, share their feelings, and grow.

Alfie Kohn

We have high ambitions for all of our children and recognise that children have different starting points for their learning.

At Lenthall we plan according to children’s stage of development so that all of our children can flourish and develop. We aim for children to be well-rounded individuals who are independent, resilient, and confident in themselves and with others.

Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right. Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.

The Early Years form the first stage of our whole school curriculum. We have identified curricular goals for all of our children, which are broken down into progressive milestones. You can find out more in the information below.

Learning Environment

Our indoor and outdoor learning environment is carefully planned and set up to allow child-initiated play; it provides all of our children with carefully planned opportunities to explore, create and learn through exciting, stimulating, interactive and accessible resources.

Our Early Years environment enables our children to flourish.

Teaching is not about answering questions but about raising questions – opening doors for them in places that they could not imagine.
