At Ashwood Park we welcome children to our Reception classes from both our onsite nursery and other settings. The children learn through a mixture of child initiated learning and adult led planning. We have a wonderful learning environment both inside and outside for the children to access:

Nurturing adults, activities and resources provide opportunities for children to progress towards the early learning goals in the seven areas of learning. These areas are; Communication and language, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design.
