Avondale Early Years children Tots

Children move to our Reception Class in September preceding their fifth birthday. We take great care to ensure that this transition to ‘big school’ is a smooth and positive experience for all children. They will have many shared experiences prior to this, to ease transition.

About Early Years / Foundation Stage

Our Early Years Department is an integral part of the school. The classrooms are bright, well-equipped and stimulating for learning. All spaces are in close proximity to the school hall and have access to a shared outside covered area and playground.

A carefully planned curriculum, appropriate to this age, ensures that all seven aspects of learning are included. Each day the children experience exciting and stimulating activities based on their current interests and needs.

During these formative years we nurture good social skills and encourage a love of learning, laying firm foundations for each child’ s future direction.
