Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage at LIA. Here, in the Early Years, we enjoy learning through play and we make every learning experience fun and stimulating. We believe that learning should be accessible for all children and it should be enjoyable. When learning is fun, children learn better. We foster curiosity and a love for learning.

There are plenty of exciting learning opportunities in the Early Years. We have an exciting outdoor learning area which has its own mud kitchen too!


A weekly session where parents and carers are welcome to join us and take part in fun activities with their children.  They can make crafts, work on phonics and mathematics activities and games.

“I love Stay & Play, love the well prepared little activities that are appropriate to what they’re studying or time of year, nice to be involved with the children”.
