Curriculum and Ofsted


Our curriculum standards are set following The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework which enables us to deliver a high standard of development and learning outcomes for our children. Through a system of careful planning using observations taken of the children, we are able to provide a curriculum which enhances their individual progression towards their transition into school. We understand that well adjusted children are more likely to thrive in a challenging academic environment later on in life.

We are members of the Early Years Alliance. The Early Years  Alliance is the largest and most representative early years membership organisation in England. They support early years providers to deliver quality, affordable and sustainable care and learning to families, and work to ensure that all children, regardless of background, are given the best possible start in life. 


We are an Ofsted registered setting. Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They inspect services providing education and skills for learners of all ages. Our latest inspection judged us to be a ‘good’ setting.

“I would like to thank the staff at Caterpillars for giving my son the best start to his education and for helping him to grow into the happy, clever little boy that he is.

He has had the best time at Caterpillars – it’s his favourite place to go. I am so grateful for all the guidance given to me as well as my son and for making sure he always had a happy learning environment.

I would like to say thank you for having him at Caterpillars. I have always known he was safe and happy whilst with you”.
