"Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right. Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.”
(Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage, 2021)
The children have settled into Havergal and have made lots of new friends.
Learning in our Reception class is a balance of child-initiated play and adult led sessions. We believe that this leads to the best levels of progress and well-being for our children, and we ensure this is achieved by building on the children’s interests, motivation and developmental stage.
We have both an indoor and outdoor area. Your children will play with water and create wonders in our Mud Kitchen. They will wear all weather clothing so that they can be outdoors both in sunshine and when it is raining.
We want our children to be independent and not rely on adults for every small issue, so we support and encourage them to find ways to resolve conflict, solve problems and make connections in their learning.
