About Assunnah EYFS


At Assunnah early years we believe that all children deserve the best start to their life, we aim to provide a stimulating and enabling environment for our little learners!


In the Early Years at Assunnah our children are happy.  They are excited and motivated to learn through rich and challenging learning experiences; opportunities to explore and take risks, and first-hand experiences.

We have high ambitions for all our children and recognise that children have different starting points to their learning. We plan according to children’s stage of development so all can thrive and develop. We aim for children to be well-rounded individuals who are i resilient, confident and independent in themselves and with others.


Our partnership with parents means that parents have the opportunity to work closely with our Early Years practitioners to support children’s transition into the setting. We would like parents to feel secure in the knowledge that their child is well cared for and happy at school.

Our parents are welcome to be actively involved in their children’s learning in school and are able to share learning experiences through ‘stay and play’ sessions, soft starts, learning journeys, volunteering and parent workshops. We recognise that parents are the first educators in children’s lives and value contributions to judgements about children’s development. We use this information to support our assessments and share information about what children need to do next to develop and thrive.

Parental Agreement Form

Nursery and Reception Application form 2024″


Nursery 3-4’s

At first the school was mainly attended by members of the local community, but with the growth and success of Assunnah Primary School we now have students from neighbouring communities and even from the outside boroughs.

Reception 4-5s

Children who attend the nursery must apply separately for a place in Reception class before they reach 4 years old, as they will not automatically transition to the Assunnah Reception class. Parents will be informed of this in January of the required year and given an application form if they wish to apply.

Aims and Objectives

Assunnah Early Years aims to start children on the right step towards the tarbiyah based model implemented at the primary school, which is outlined in more detail under Early Years Development. We believe that our model gives children the best possible start in life, and enables them to achieve their full potential.

We also follow the Early Year Framework, which clearly indicates that a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. Thus, we aim to provide a secure, comfortable, and safe setting to nurture children to flourish within an Islamic environment. We aim to do this by adhering to the following principles set out in the Early Year Foundation Stage Framework by providing:

    • Quality and consistency, so that every child makes good progress and no child gets left behind;
    • A secure foundation through learning and development opportunities which are planned around the needs and interests of each individual child and are assessed and reviewed regularly;
    • Partnership working between practitioners and with parents and/or carers;
    • Equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice, ensuring that every child is included and supported.
