The Next Stage

One of our key roles is to ensure all our children, boys and girls alike, enjoy a smooth transition to their next stage school.

School-Ready and Confident

From your child’s first day at Nursery they will be supported on a gentle journey preparing them for starting school.

In Caterpillars our focus on the prime areas of learning embeds the vital skills children need to enable them to learn. Learning to respect others and our environment, listen to others, show kindness and courtesy whilst being part of a team. We all help to tidy up, we raise our hands when we have something to say in circle time and we clear our own cup and plate from the table. We learn to line up by the door and move sensibly inside to keep each other safe.

By the time the children are in Butterflies they have developed these essential life skills which are the key skills you require when starting school.

In the Butterfly Class the day is broken up with specialist teaching and is run very much like a Reception Class. Staying for lunch and the afternoon prepares the children for a full school day.

Our staff take pride in the fact that the boys and girls leaving King’s House Nursery are ready to face their next stage schools with confidence.
