Early years comprises of children in Kindergarten and Reception, aged between 3 and 5 years.
Early Years at Bablake encompasses both Kindergarten and Reception children within their own purpose built open plan settings. Surrounded by idyllic green open spaces, our highly skilled staff are dedicated to creating a nurturing environment where your child can be happy, grow in confidence, build relationships and commence their learning journey. The relationships we build with children lie at the heart of our successes, allowing us to plan learning opportunities that centre around your child’s passions and interests. This, alongside the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework creates a robust curriculum for our children to make great strides in their progress and achievement.
Learning through play, learning through the environment and learning through meaningful and engaging experiences are key elements at Bablake that build the foundations for a love of learning. In Early Years, your child will be encouraged to become a creative and critical thinker; planning their own learning, choosing appropriate resources and adapting their plans in order to achieve the desired outcome.
Both Kindergarten and Reception children have continuous access to a covered outdoor learning space, in addition to access to our beautiful grounds. We endeavour for your child to consider the outdoors as a place to spend quality time being present in the moment and noticing all around them. The outdoor environment here at Bablake, is a place to thrive in moments of exploration and curiosity.
It was refreshing to visit a school where children are still treated as individuals and their emotional and personal development sits at the heart of all that you do.
