Nursery & Reception

Nursery and Reception years children learn in Hodder House, where we aim for excellence and enjoyment in a broad and balanced curriculum which follows the latest Early Years Foundation Stage guidance and the principles of Every Child Matters.

We give children opportunities to develop their knowledge and skills across seven areas of learning: Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Communication and Language: Physical Development; Literacy; Mathematics; Understanding of the World; Expressive Arts and Design.

Music, Physical Education and swimming lessons are taught as specialist subjects. We also run a weekly Outdoor Classroom programme throughout Hodder House.
