Early Years

Your child’s metacognitive learning journey begins here at Edgware Early Years!

 “The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination."   

 Don Williams, Jr.

Early Years statement of intent: 

As a Thinking School, we strongly believe developing the characteristics of learning are fundamental to children on their life long journey of becoming self-regulated learners. We therefore provide a language rich, creative and challenging environment, inspiring and creating independence, reflection, curiosity and critical thinking.
