Welcome to the Early Years Centre

Robins & Wrens

The Early Years Centre (Reception & Nursery) is taught by Mrs Doggett and Mrs Warren (one and a half days). The class is supported by Mrs Jarvis, Miss Knappett and Mrs Kent. Our Reception children are called Robins and those in Nursery are known as Wrens.

We have a lovely classroom which was originally the old village hall and converted to a classroom in 2007. Our classroom is set up in different areas, linked to each of the areas within the Early Years Foundation Stage, which children can access independently to support their learning. We have a large carpet area, maths area, role-play area, creative corner, construction area, writing table and space for group work. We also have a courtyard with mud-kitchen, sand pit, stage, flower garden and music wall. 

As an Early Years Centre we have a unique set up that enables us to teach nursery and reception children together. We pride ourselves in working in this unique way and find it to be of huge benefit for the children we teach. We know that children learn best through play when following their own interests and as such our learning themes are influenced by children’s motivations and curiosity. We provide a stimulating and creative environment, both indoors and outdoors, combined with adult-directed activities that allow children to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding. We aim to inspire every child; preparing them to be lifelong learners, as well as individually challenging them so they can be the best they can be in all areas of their learning and development. The early years is all about practical, fun learning and we have plenty of it!
