Stanhope Reception


 Stanhope Reception is a safe and fun environment, where children enjoy playing, exploring and active learning, while developing their creative and critical thinking skills. Children receive high quality education, which meets their needs, challenges each individual and provides sequenced and progressive learning, in context. We provide an ambitious and engaging curriculum, which follows the children’s interests through meaningful learning. Curiosity, concentration and resilience are developed, as well as self-control and the ability to know and remember more. Children in our reception are; exposed to a wide range of vocabulary, through adult interactions, stories, songs and games. Children leaving our Reception are ready for Year 1 and the next stage of their personal, social and emotional development.
