To the boys and girls at Statham Little Foxes we hope it just seems like good fun, but our pre-school curriculum is tailored to support the Early Years Foundation Stage.
This means our approach reflects the government’s national framework for the learning, development and care of children from birth to the age of five.
Put simply, the Early Years Foundation Stage was developed to ensure childcare is safe and secure, while giving the best possible support to help kids fulfil their potential. That’s exactly what we aim to do.
Our curriculum puts a focus on a small number of themes each term to help your child’s understanding of the world around them. As well as helping them get the most from their time with us, it is a great way of warming them up for the big move to primary school.
You can read the national framework here.

Please note that all children are eligible for government funding from the first full term after they turn 3-years-old. This covers the cost of up to 5 sessions a week.
We can help arrange your child’s grant funding for you, please just ask our staff for assistance.
Food and drink
We’ll provide a snack for your child during each half day session. However, we do not provide lunch for children attending the all-day pre-school on Mondays or Thursdays, so parents using these sessions are asked to provide a packed lunch for their child.
Pre-school children aged over 3 years can attend the Statham Little Foxes Breakfast Club at a cost of £4.25 a day. This runs from 7.45am to 9am and includes breakfast with a choice of cereals, toast and fresh fruit. Please visit the Breakfast Club section to find out more.
