Favourite subject to teach: I love how our Early

Years Curriculum encourages our learners to

explore their imaginations and demonstrate

their skills and knowledge in various ways. I

am happiest in the role-play areas, taking on

a character along with the children;

scaffolding play and following their narrative.

I also really enjoy experimenting with craft materials and media at the Creation Station to make models and pictures of familiar objects, people and animals. Making things is so much fun! I also love teaching our littlest learners how to speak and understand some simple French vocabulary through games and rhymes.

Favourite children’s book: The Bog Baby

Favourite children’s author: Kes Gray – author of the ‘Daisy’ series and the ‘Oi…’ books

Favourite song: Ed Sheeran is my favourite singer/songwriter. I love all of his songs! I do enjoy lots of the music in the charts and sing at the top of my voice in the car along to the radio!

Hobbies: Being out in nature is my happy place! I love exploring woodland and river trails with my family. I also enjoy eating out nice restaurants and visiting new cities with my friends. To wind down on an evening, I like to curl up on the sofa and watch a good series on the television.

In UFS we provide a safe, nurturing and creative environment where your children can flourish and grow into independent young learners, ready for the next stage of their school journey.

We are proud to have produced an environment in which children can thrive in their learning with plentiful activities on offer, carefully designed to promote discovery and application of skills in an exciting way linked to our topics. Our indoor and outdoor provision areas are well-resourced and facilitate the children in directing their own learning through play.

In our care, your children are challenged to be the best version of themselves.  We believe in an inclusive approach to education and so in addition to equipping your child with knowledge and understanding across the 17 different areas of the EYFS curriculum, we aspire for them to demonstrate kindness, to be inquisitive and to display determination when tackling new things. ​

Please follow us on Twitter @DaneRoydUFS to keep up to date with what we get up to!
