Abingdon Preparatory School - formerly Josca's - merged with Abingdon School in 1998.

Children in the EYFS learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside. We work on a free-flow system, allowing children the freedom to choose their learning environment. All of our activities are carefully prepared in order to meet the seven areas of learning, as identified in the New EYFS framework. We work alongside the children to ensure that they have the opportunities to lead their own learning and use this knowledge base to plan activities that develop a broad base of skills. Alongside this we follow the Read Write Inc program to develop and promote our initial phonic skills and provide a solid foundation for early reading and writing activities. Children are taught by an EYFS specialist teacher and supported by a highly experienced Teaching Assistant, with additional part-time early years teaching assistant support. Children also experience a range of visits and visitors, which both complement and enhance our curriculum.
