Head’s Welcome to EYFSWelcome to Randal Cremer Early Years.
We offer both full-time and part-time places. We try hard to take parents’ and carers’ wishes into account when offering a place and if we can offer a full-time place, we will. However, if a parent or carer does not yet feel their child is ready to come to school for a full day that is also fine, after all it is the parents and carers who know their children best.
Learning in our two-form entry Reception is a balance of child-initiated play and adult led sessions. We believe that this leads to the best levels of progress and wellbeing for our children, and we ensure this is achieved by building on the children’s interests, motivation and developmental stage. We teach Phonics, Maths and Literacy daily in short sessions on the carpet. The remainder of the day is mainly self-directed, with children leading their learning through play and adults responding in order to move learning forward.
Both settings offer an outdoor and indoor area. Your children will play with water and create wonders in our Mud Kitchen. They will wear all weather clothing so that they can be outdoors both in sunshine and when it is raining.
We want our children to be independent and not rely on adults for every small issue, so we support and encourage them to find ways to resolve conflict, solve problems and make connections in their learning.
