Foundation Stage

Welcome to the Foundation Stage at Mount Street!


At Mount Street Primary School and Nursery we aim to provide a learning environment which gives the children many varied opportunities, to help them to learn and develop to the best of their ability.  We are a fully integrated unit which provides for children aged 2-5 years, through a play based curriculum allowing children to develop at their own rate and in their own way.

The children of the foundation team

The Children of the foundation team are aged 2 to 5 years old.   They are organised into three classes for carpet and learning time; Me2, Nursery and Reception Class. They enjoy learning in their classes and then taking their learning into their play.  They have opportunities to take part in a range of adult directed and child initiated activities.  Visit the class pages (links above) to find out more about what the children are learning.

Please take the time to watch a short video sharing some of the play and learning opportunities that take place in the Foundation Stage at Mount Street Primary School and Nursery.


All children in our Me2, Nursery and Reception class have a Dojo account. This is a secure account that will be used to communicate between home and school.  We may post photo's of activities your children have been taking part in whilst at nursery/school,  send a message about exciting opportunities for your child, send a reminder message or even set challenges for your child to take part in at home.  Please make sure you keep an eye on your child's Dojo account so that they don't miss out on anything.
