Early Years at Joseph Hood
At Joseph Hood we aim to open the door to life long learning by providing a happy, secure and inspiring early years learning environment, which ultimately builds the foundations for future education, skills and resilience for life. Our unit supports children to: develop confidence to ask questions, explore and investigate their world through first-hand experiences; and think creatively and imaginatively through the provision of open-ended practical resources.
If we open their eyes we will open their minds.
Our Learning Environment
Here are some slideshows of our stimulating and challenging learning environments, which nurture learning through play. We embrace outdoor learning; this is reflected in the opportunities we provide for self initiated play across the 7 Areas of Learning.
