Making a difference
for our future


Reception Maple

The Reception Class includes children in the age range from 4-5 years old. The Reception Year is the foundation on which future learning takes place. We encourage creativity, independence, enquiry, communication and problem solving. Most importantly with the children we try to create an enjoyable experience and have fun. The classroom and its outside area are always busy. You never know what you may find in Reception: a park keeper, a bean stalk, caterpillars and best of all a whole class of new friends.
