Early Years

"A skilled five year old grows from a busy four year old and a curious three year old!"

At St. Philomena's Catholic School we aim to nurture and support our children to ensure they all grow into curious and confident young people. In our Early Years Foundation Stage the children are encouraged from an early age to question and wonder about the world they live in. The staff will help the children through child-led and adult supported activities for individuals to explore and learn at their own pace.

We believe in the immense potential of each of our young learners and we are committed to giving them every opportunity to succeed. We also believe that curiosity is a central component of being human. Children are born curious and they are drawn to learning, and by providing an exciting and stimulating environment where they learn through their play we aim to keep that curiosity alive.
