Welcome to the Early Years at Berkswich
Here in the Early Years, we aim to provide all children with a wide range of experiences that will allow them to develop academically, spiritually and socially to reach their full potential, within a Christian context.
In their early years, children develop physically, cognitively and emotionally at a faster rate than at any other time in their lives. At Berkswich, we strive to provide a balance of child-initiated play, with focused and structured learning, to ensure that the children relish learning to read, write, use numbers, think mathematically, explore their world and make creations. Through child-led interests, children are given a holistic approach to learning, where their innate curiosity is built upon in a safe, homely environment.
Children in Nursery and Reception are immersed in a rich learning environment filled with awe and wonder, where opportunities and experiences allow them to flourish in all aspects of their development. This includes opportunities in indoor, outdoor and local areas, where activities are planned to excite, intrigue and motivate children in their learning.
We appreciate that all children are different and we pride ourselves on being an inclusive school which is nurturing and has a clear focus on how each individual child learns.
