Cygnet Sessions Age 2.5 - starting school reception class
We focus on learning through play, using a tailored curriculum leading to approved learning outcomes. Cygnet sessions allow children the opportunity to make their own choices with adult interaction to encourage activities. We follow the National Curriculum's Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) for children. We have a high adult to child ratio with a maximum of 28 children at each session, giving a high standard of individual attention.
Swan Sessions - for up to 3 terms before a child starts reception class
These sessions have been developed to aid the child in the transition from pre-school to primary school. Again, we have a high adult to child ratio, with a maximum of 15 children at each session, giving an excellent standard of care and attention.
We offer supervision for children during their lunch break. There is a fee of £6.00 per child, per session to cover room hire and staff costs. This fee is not covered by Universal (Funded Early Education) funding. Children provide their own packed lunch. It is not compulsory for children to attend the lunchtime session, even if they are attending both the morning and afternoon sesison that day, if you prefer you can take your child home for lunch.
