Winkleigh Foundation Unit

Winkleigh Foundation Unit welcomes all children from the age of two (starting the term after their second birthday) to five year olds.
 
The Foundation Stage stretches from birth to five years old and incorporates a child's Reception class year. At Winkleigh, children from the ages of two years to five years now work, play and share a well-resourced area, supported by highly trained adults, who form a specialised Early Years and Foundation Stage team, delivering the Foundation Stage curriculum.
 
Parents and carers are their children's first educators, helping their children to make major steps in their learning. Our aim is to build on the children's strengths and interests and widen their experiences by providing a stimulating and nurturing environment, in which they can develop and progress at a rate that is appropriate for their stage of development.
