Welcome to Meerkats
In Reception we promote a love of learning following the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS).
The EYFS is a statutory framework that sets the standard that all Early Years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children are ready for school and gives them a broad range of knowledge and skills that provides the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.
Our Reception class starts at 8:45 am and finishes at 3:10 am for children age 4 to 5 years old. Our Reception class offers the best start to formal education at Vernon Terrace. We value each child as an individual learner and help to provide them with the tools needed to progress them to the next level of their development. During the morning we learn and develop our knowledge focusing on literacy or mathematics. In the afternoons we focus on personal, social and emotional development, knowledge and understanding of the world, physical development, communication and language, and expressive arts and design.

We value a strong partnership between home and School in order to support your child's learning effectively. Our Reception and Nursery classes work closely together in order to provide the best possible support for our children.
