Our Early Years section includes our 3 and 4 year olds in respective Nursery and Reception classes. Their programme of work is based on the Early Years guidelines from the National Curriculum of England and Wales.This stage is an integral part of the School and provides an excellent base from which the children progress into a more formal learning environment as they enter the Primary School.
Based on sound early-childhood principles, our programme recognizes that each child is unique in their interests and abilities. During this time of rapid growth and development, each child will benefit from an experienced based learning environment that allows him/her to fulfill their curiosity through meaningful play and work in the classroom and on the playground.
There is a significant amount of creative activities including, art, craft, song and dance incorporated into the curriculum.
Nursery and Reception classes benefit from having both a class teacher and a teacher assistant ensuring that each child has the opportunity to grow and learn at their own pace with effective support and guidance.
