Early Years - Welcome
Cygnets - Nursery
In Cygnets nursery, we work hard to support our children to become independent, confident and enthusiastic learners. Miss Channing is the Early Years Lead, with Miss Blanchett leading the nursery, and supported by Miss Davies and Miss Witcher. Throughout the year we will focus on a variety of different topics linked to the children’s interests. We plan a range of different activities to help the children reach the next steps on their learning journeys. The children have access to a range of different learning experiences, both inside and outside.
We offer children the opportunity to attend nursery for the term after their third birthday with the offer of 30 hours or 15 hours per week.
Tadpoles & Newts - Reception
We have two classes within our Reception: Tadpoles, taught by Miss Channing (Early Years Leader) and Newts, taught by Mrs Jordan. Mrs Harrison, Mrs Kupriene, Miss Plenty, Miss Hawkes and Miss Darby make up the Learning Support team. The two classes work very closely together, along with nursery to ensure that there is a joined up curriculum and provision and that all children are given fantastic learning opportunities. There are times for working exclusively within a single area, such as the classroom and times when the learning is taken into shared areas or outside. Stories are at the heart of the learning which can be taught whole class, or group - both inside and out. The focus is on developing children who are independent and curious learners.
