Our Early Years

Kilburn Infant & Nursery School (KINS) comprises of 3 separate buildings, with 2 Key Stages in learning:

- Nursery (original Victorian school) - Early Years Foundation Stage  FS1 (EYFS)   3-4 yrs

Reception Unit - FS2 EYFS   4-5 yrs

- Key Stage One (KS1)    5-7 yrs

We are fortunate that each area has it's own outdoor play area, and within the grounds is a joint playing field.



In the Early Years at KINS we pride ourselves in providing a safe, stimulating and exciting environment both inside and outside for all our children to become engaged and to develop their independent learning skills.


In our Early Years the children are happy and positive. They are excited and motivated to learn through rich and challenging learning experiences: opportunities to explore and take risks, and first-hand experiences. Our ambitions for all our children are high and we 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 independent, resilient, and confident in themselves and with others.


Our Ofsted Report, October 2022 - "The Early Years environment is an exciting and vibrant place. Children follow the well-established routines. They are happy and well cared for. Children enjoy participating in the wide range of exciting activities, all of which help them to learn the content of the curriculum".
