Early Years Foundation Stage
What to expect in the Early Years (age 2-4)
If your child is age 2-3 or 3-4 the chances are that you will want to give them the advantages of some form of Early Years setting, whether that is a nursery, pre-school or playgroup.
(A Nursery will usually care for children from six-weeks of age until they start primary school. However, a preschool will usually care for children between the age of three and four)
A preschool is often used by parents who want to prepare their children for full time education. Instead of a child starting their education when they enter what schools call the Reception Class (Foundation 2), a preschool gives a structured environment that will help them with the transition from home to school.
The MIS Nursery will usually care for children on a full-time basis. (Mondays to Fridays) At the MIS preschool children will only stay for two or three hours at a time (Saturday mornings)
Whether you choose a nursery or a preschool for your child will largely depend on your personal requirements. If you require childcare but still want your child to benefit from a structured learning environment, you may want to consider enrolling them in our MIS Nursery Class (Foundation 1).
