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 Tapestry Learning Journal.  Tapestry is a secure online Learning Journal to record photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, to build up a record of your child's experiences during their time with us.  Many of you have already downloaded the app and are accessing these observations, some of you have been using it as a great opportunity to share your child's home learning with us.  If you have not already signed up to Tapestry we would love for you to do this now.  I have attached a letter with further details and information and simple instructions.  Please keep an eye out for an email inviting you to join.  We hope to see you all on Tapestry soon.  Many thanks
