Welcome to the EYFS Class page. Your teachers this year will be Mrs Oliver and Ms Forrest. In EYFS, our aim is to provide a warm and caring environment whereby  your child has a love for learning that will continue throughout their education. We will ensure your child has the best start to their learning experience at Cayton School.  We will be giving your child all the skills they will need to be a confident and independent learner, it will be a a time for your child to shine. We plan our activities around your child and ensure they are at the heart of everything we do.  We cannot wait to see what the year ahead brings and we are really looking forward to sharing all these precious moments with you.
