Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

At Dunston Primary and Nursery Academy we aim to provide the highest quality care and education for all our children, giving them a strong foundation for their future learning. We create a safe and happy environment with motivating and enjoyable learning experiences that enable children to become confident and independent.


We ensure children’s interests are fostered and developed alongside child initiated and adult led activities that meet all aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum.


We currently provide Early Years Education for 3 and 4-year-old's in our F1 Ducklings Class.

Please contact Mrs Kate Collis, our Deputy Head of Academy, for more information.
