About Us:

Our Reception intake includes two classes, each benefitting from experienced teaching and support staff. We operate on a daily basis through a flexible timetable where children experience a mix of adult directed teaching alongside long uninterrupted periods of child initiated learning both inside and outside.


We maintain these relationships through personal conversations and our online Learning Journey - Tapestry.

Children are provided with opportunities to read and write throughout the environment and resources are put out to suit children’s interests and needs. We work closely with our on-site school nursery as well as private nurseries to ensure a smooth transition into school and work closely with families to support both children and parents with any anxieties they may have with starting school.


We hold open mornings in October and January, where you can come and visit our environment and see us in action! If you would like to visit us at another time, please call us and arrange a visit, we look forward to meeting you.
