Foundations@Springwood is a FS0 Pre-school & FS1 Nursery that provides care for children 2 – 4 years at Springwood Junior Academy.


Our aim is to provide good quality accessible and affordable childcare to all, providing a safe, secure and stimulating environment to children from the local community. We pride ourselves in ensuring that every person who enters the setting receives a warm and friendly welcome.


Provision is planned around the children’s interests and includes a balance of both indoor and outdoor learning. The children learn through high quality play which develops their confidence and independence, as well as fun and engaging adult led activities. The children will follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum which is divided into seven “Areas of Learning” 3 Prime areas and 4 specific areas as well as developing the Characteristics of Effective Learning: Playing and Exploring, Active Learning and Creating and Thinking Critically.
