Welcome to Early Years, which is an incredibly exiting time as your child starts their learning journey in school. Here at Holmwood House, we refer to this stage as Phase 1, and combine the Early Years and Foundation Stage with Year 1
We understand the importance of creating an exciting and engaging curriculum that is based on the interests of your child to help encourage a love of learning. During your child’s Pre-Reception year our aim is to develop their social skills, encourage curiosity and create a desire to learn. It is also a pathway to prepare your child for the start of their Reception year.
In Reception we carry on all the excellent learning that has taken place in our Nursery and Pre-Reception. Through play, adult-initiated activities and with the support of the staff within the department the children explore, discover ideas, develop concepts and skills to become independent learners and amazing problem solvers.
We work to build strong partnerships with parents so that we can develop your child’s education together. We want your child to be happy and have a positive learning experience where they feel nurtured and supported.

Head of Phase 1
