Share your photos on Tapestry. We would love to see them!

 

Washing Line

Share your photos on Tapestry. We would love to see them!

Early Years Foundation Stage
A child’s first year of statutory schooling is Reception Year. Children will follow the Early Years curriculum and at Maytree we use the children’s interests to lead this by learning through play.
 
We provide a wide range of learning experiences for children which caters for the needs of all. Broad topic areas include:
• Me and my school.
• Everything Changes
• Let's Explore

 

We work to support the development of the whole child, so personal and social development is as important as learning to write. This supports our ethos of ‘Caring, Sharing, Aiming High’.
