Reception Transition

While the children are with us, they have the exciting opportunity to engage in activities and expertise from across the whole school setting, including:

  • PE lessons

  • Forest School sessions

  • Outdoor story time

  • Story time and phonics with Reception teachers

  • Collective Worship

When children are ready to move onto their primary school setting, we believe that they have been given the best start with us and have established wonderful relationships with staff in the Reception classes and across the school at St John's.

Caterpillars (Age 2)

We have a strong focus on nurture and positive relationships within our Caterpillars class. The children have access to their own inside and outside space, which has been carefully constructed to meet their individual needs. The staff hold appropriate qualifications to cater for our youngest children with a sensitive and loving approach. We know that for many, this will be their first experience of care away from the home & so we aim to replicate the safe, secure space that they will be used to, whilst developing their independence.

Butterflies (Age 3+)

Whether your child starts with us here, or is continuing their journey from Caterpillars class, they will be able to enjoy their own inside and outside area. The areas available are extensive and offer a wide range of opportunities to allow them to exercise their imagination and creativity, alongside our experienced staff.
