Local Nurseries and Playgroups
We work hard to ensure that there is a smooth transition from pre-school to Reception. Our foundation stage teachers visit the local providers to meet the children starting with us and to gather as much information as possible before they start. The children attend a 'taster' day in July, with a staggered start to full-time education in the autumn.
Our nearest playgroup, Little Learners, also bring their children to our EPIC celebration assemblies and use our playground during the day.
Sharing expertise develops consistency amongst providers. We therefore work as closely as we can, including phonics training and moderation meetings.
