Early Years Foundation Stage


At Blackheath Preparatory School we offer the highest standards in giving children an exceptional start to school life. In the Early Years Foundation Stage, we encourage children to build on previous experiences and explore new concepts in a fun, purposeful and stimulating environment. 

Our expert, dedicated staff bring a wealth of knowledge and experience.  Children are introduced to reading, writing, mathematics, science and technology through the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. As Early Years practitioners, we understand that children grow and progress at different rates. We carefully plan play and real experiences both indoors and outdoors, to ensure that children are supported in moving forward in all areas of their individual development. Our outdoor environment has been designed to encourage freedom of movement and we make full use of our beautiful school grounds and natural areas to enhance learning experiences.

Our aim is to prepare children for the challenges and opportunities of today’s world, by supporting them in developing socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually and morally. Positive relationships are fostered and friendships promoted to ensure that children feel happy, safe and ready to learn at Blackheath Preparatory School.
