Early Years Foundation Stage at Christ Church


Hello I am Mrs Manning,  the Early Years Foundation Stage Lead at Christ Church.  Our team currently consists of myself, Mrs McKay, Mrs Sadeghi and Mrs Arnott.


At Christ Church we have an Early Years unit for Nursery and Reception children. We admit Nursery children when they are 3 years old. Children enter Reception in the September of the school year that they are 5 years old.  Children in our Early Years unit come from a range of different cultures and backgrounds and speak a range of different languages. We have happy children, who enjoy learning.


Our philosophy is centred on the theme that all children are unique individuals. When children enter our setting, we work hard to get to know them, through establishing positive and supportive relationships. We aim to find out their interests and needs by observing their development and then carefully plan to support next steps in learning. We have strong partnerships with parents.


We are very proud of our Early Years learning environment. We have a large indoor classroom environment and an extensive outdoor environment, including a purpose built sheltered outdoor classroom, where children can still be outdoors in the fresh air, even in bad weather.


Please contact the school for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.
