Early Years Foundation Stage
Since September 2012 all nurseries follow the E.Y.F.S. The dedicated team at Patterdale lodge aim to provide all children with a wealth of stimulating and challenging experiences within the learning environment, inside and outside, which will give them a firm foundation for future learning at school.

We also have a separate outdoor area for under two's offering a wide variety of experiences.
We promote healthy eating by offering a well balanced diet to help ensure children's nutritional needs
